    Whats up guys, BOOST control

    Hey guys I'm new to the forums.... Just a little info, I just moved back to the states from a 2 year tour in Japan... I finally picked up my 02 wrx and I was planning on getting boost control.
    Any suggestions?

    Yeah, the stock ECU has boost, timing, and fuel control built in!

    I would recommend letting someone tune your car and having them decide how much boost you should run.

    I wish i could figure out where this 17psi # came from. I run 20.5 psi from around 3600 RPM too 5000, then tapering to 14 at redline. You can REALLY push the stock turbo hard and get fairly good results.

    However....i dont know how much you can run on pump fuel. I think i used to run about 17 psi tapering to 12.5 on 91 oct.
