    Finally I got full Boost

    Ever since I bought my 03 in May I didn't think it was a fast as it should be. My slightly modded Integra was just as fast as my WRX. I didn't think much off it cause I was just thinking that I went from a loud modded car to a stock car and would just have to wait for some mods to put that extra smile on my face. Well after I installed my DP I was still just boosting a little more than .06 MPA in 3rd WOT. That was better but still not what I thought it should be so after surfing around on here I found a diagram of all the vaccum hoses around the Turbo. When I looked how mine were they just didn't look like the pictures so I printed of the diagram from the other thread and looked at it this weekend. Here someone had that restricter "pill" in the wrong spot. It was in the line going to the wastegate. So I switched that around and now I see .1 or just under in 3rd WOT. Now my car seems to really rip. Thanks ClubWRX!

    Does your DP affect how much it boosts? Do you know what max boost should be in 1st and 2nd?

    I'm having engine problems myself and when I look down under close to WOT, I am getting .04 mpa in 2nd gear before any problems start to show. ....

    Can you provide a link to those vaccuume line diagrams you mentioned?

    Thanks!

    More than meets the eye.

    I used to get about .04 in first and second now I get .08-.09 I will try and find the link for you today. I'll let you know. Oh and WITH my DP and BEFORE I fixed the problem I never saw above .06. That would be on cool mornings in 3rd WOT.

    Glad to read you sorted out your car.

    I don't know why people just can't put their vacuum lines back or the restrictor pill before selling/trading the car. This happens a lot.
