    Proud owner of a 2005 WRX

    Hey everyone,
    I am new to the forum and I purchase a stock 2005 WRX back a couple months ago and have slowly been working on it and making it faster. I currently have a GrimmSpeed Ceramic coated up-pipe(my first mod to the car), a GP moto intake silencer delete, Cobb Turbo back(with Kartboy Hangers), Cobb AccessPort, Primitive racing Rally Skid plate and Diff. Skid Plate. I am sure I have done a couple of other things that I can't remember right now too. Anyway I love my WRX and the Subaru Impreza line in general, they are great cars. I have question though, which probably a dumb question but here goes, I am wondering what the difference is between Target Boost and Boost on the AccessPort? I have tried a search and to search on google but I can't find the difference. If anyone can explain this to me that would be great, just curious.

    Target Boost is what the map is calling for, while Boost is what the ECU is reading.

    Okay, so when you look at the accessport and it says that target boost is 16, that is what the boost should be at for the given situation, but boost is where it is actually at. Am I understanding this correct. Also sometimes when I look at the target boost, and the I look at the actual boost on a datalog, the actual boost is slightly lower, is this normal?

    That's correct. There will likely be variance; the map notes outline an acceptable range.
