    You said that the AP had a Stage 2 map that "the guy you bought it off of put on it"...do you know if it's a base stage 2 map or if it was some sort of a protune? If it's a protune, it might not work the best for your car.

    I am pretty sure its a base map, he did say he had never had an issue with it till recently and that hes had the map on there for a year. Is there a way to find out if it is a protune or a base for sure.

    As said above, the car can probably be logged with the V1 cable and Romraider. You may even be able to save a copy of the map with ECUflash to look directly at the rom (don't think so though). I'd assume a protune would have a different boost target than cobb, or other obvious differences with the timing or fuel targets we could see in the logs.

    Also as said above, a log will tell you a lot more than us guessing at things.

    Datalogging with Romraider:

    Regardless, you should be cleaning and checking your MAF and for intake leaks and boost control system leaks at least (we don't call it MAS).

    Your A/F correction is maxed out at 25. That means it is having to add a bunch of fuel for unaccounted air, or your MAF or A/F don't agree because one or the other is bad.

    This is the type of thing you would expect to see if the turbo inlet hose was torn (fairly common). It can be hard to spot if it is on the bottom at the turbo coupling.
