    I'd remove the dongle, and sell it online... then I'd either get a downpipe and a protune, get online and buy a xpt stage 1 map, and have that flashed, OR... go back to the dealership you purchased it from, and say that you want the car flashed back to stock because you purchased it from them and didn't know that the map wasn't the correct one.

    Hello all, I have posted this question elsewhere and looked a bit through these forums, (I know it's out there).
    My question, I am at 5000ft and wondering what I should expect out of the TD06 20g on an 09 wrx (2.5). I have checked all the obvious, boost controller, boost leak, have retuned it, changed timing, it's running e85 with 1000cc inj's, tgv delete, complete 3" tb exhaust. Almost full stage 4. I hit 20lbs boost by 4200 and it fades to about 15lbs with 100% wgdc...I was expecting more than this. I am wondering if I have a balance issue with the turbo, so anyone with experience tuning a 20g at this elevation please chime in. Should I expect more flow out of this turbo?
    Thanks
    -Carl

    Whatever you do, Bionic, don't go to Under Pressure. Had a 3000GT VR4 that they litterally destroyed (improperly installed two headgaskets causing the engine to explode), stole my alternator, charged me for the same alternator to be put back on. They also redid a buddies STI with nearly $15k worth of work. They took his car while he was deployed and showed it off at shows to compete in BOV (TurboXS RFL BOV) and blew his engine without repairing it saying the damage was done before they took his car.

    Hey All,

    I'm in the Denver area. I have an 02 WRX Wgn with Cobb intake/airbox, Grimm UP, Invidia DP, Cobb Exhaust, Cobb Stage 2 Map.
    It's a daily driver car only.

    I wish to go to the next stage.

    I plan on getting:
    * Process West TMIC
    * Injector Dynamics 1000cc injectors
    * Walbro 255 fuel pump
    * ??? turbo
    * pro-tune

    So, the question:
    I would like a turbo with the following characteristics:
    * bolt-on to 02 WRX
    * 400..490 cfm or so
    * ~330 whp or so
    * fast spool up (3000 RPM or less would be nice)

    I was looking at the Blouch TD05H-16G XT.

    What do you suggest?

    Thanks!
    Gar

    I wanted to bump this up. I am in KS but was recommended to get tuned at the boost creep in Colorado. Any problems with getting tuned at high altitude and then returning to KS?

    I got my car tuned at the Boost Creep and Harvey is great. I would talk with him about it. He seems to like email over phones.

    Yes, it makes a pretty big difference. I'd not get a tune at high elevation for a flatland car, at all.
