    So a protune is the way to go? Is there a difference between boost creep and overboosting? Sorry for such noon questions but I've searched it and got no definite answers

    I had a stage 2 (then 3, then 3+) TP tune before I got my pro-tune at that level (3+). I enjoyed it at stage 2, and had absolutely no issues with it, and I felt it was much better than the cobb one (but also way more aggressive from my limited knowledge).

    My pro-tune gained me about 10% max HP, and 15% max torque, so erics tune was very good for an e-tune if you don't want to spend the money on a pro-tune. The pro-tune is better, of course, but you have to decide if it's worth it.

    If you have issues, and you think it's tune related (boost creep isn't), I'd email eric and see what he can do. He's very responsive and helpful.

    The guy literally just said boost creep is a mechanical issue and nothing to do with the tune. So you ask if a pro-tune is the way to go..

    You clearly haven't searched very hard because the answers to all your questions is in the very first post..

    Let me google that for you

    Maybe you should reconsider blindly modifying your car without understanding how any of the modifications work.

    Though, if you did any research prior, you would have already known that you run into boost spike/boost creep issues with catless downpipes before you bought one. Not to mention catless is terrible for the environment, won't pass emissions, and the gain in HP is negligible.

    Hate to be so blunt, but someone needs to do it. You're asking for advice, getting it, ignoring it, then asking the same question phrased differently. And yes, I was helpful; the link provided did offer a number of threads on the topics of boost creep/overboosting which should easily suffice in answering your questions. In fact, the first search result has the same answer you were given here, 3rd post in.

    In retrospect, yes a pro-tune is always the best route to go in terms of tuning.

    I dont know why you are replying to my questio. I was asking EJ because i think he knows what he is talking about. I'm sorry if I am annoying you with my stupid questions. I already apologized in advanced to EJ. The reason why im in this Forum is to ask questions from people who knows Subaru. Ive had the car for less than a year man, im still learning! You sound like those guys on the other Subaru sites, always bashing noobs. Damn.

    Simple answer: both occur when the wastegate doesn't divert enough exhaust gas away from the turbine and you see higher-than-desired pressure levels, but one is cause by a mechanical fault (creep) and one is caused by the tune (overboost).

    He's not bashing because you're a noob. He's calling you out for asking for information without bothering to look for it yourself. There is such a large amount of information out already available, it saves everyone a ton of time if you search before posting. That's all.
    Nothing wrong with being noobtastic regarding your car or otherwise. Just make an effort to learn/search for yourself.

    I understand being new to forums though, getting the hang of learning how to search and how deep to go before posting to avoid flaming/abuse can be difficult. Just don't take it personally and learn to love the pursuit of knowledge.

    Again, I'm not trying to bash you for being a noob. I was just showing you how simply you could have found the answer to your question. I'm sorry if you took it too personal, it was nothing more than some tough love.
