    If you're content with road tuning (vs. dyno tuning) you could always go with an e-tuner. But you'll need some way to flash maps to your car (i.e., Cobb Accessport, Tactrix/RomRaider). If that's an option for you, I recommend Eric at Torqued Performance. He tuned my car and I've been pleased with the results. You could also support the local community and go with WTF Tuning.

    If that's not an option then I can't offer any advice. I'm not in KY - you might check the regional forums here and see if you get recommendations.

    yea, i'll do some searching for some close tuners, and look at their reviews as well. just getting so many answers right now, gets really confusing. makes me think on it to much.

    Are those your only mods? The TGV and y pipe?
    Your tuner might be a few fries short of a happy meal if he says 10psi is normal.

    100% fuel pump duty cycle is normal at wide open throttle. 90% IDC a bit high for everything else stock.

    I would suggest going back to the stock tune and dianoise the boost issue from there.
    So, first how are you loading the map? Send us your STOCK map, or do a google search for one. Link it here(because I'm too lazy to look for you). We can get rid of the CEL for the TGV since TGV don't need anything besides a CEL delete and the Y-pipe should work fine on a stock tune.

    Since you mentioned you messed with the restrictor pill, I suggest replacing the entire t fitting assembly with new hoses and put the restrictor pill back in place. Use this diagram for a visual.

    Now, back to pretending to work.

    Yeah,... TBE = Stage 2.
    You should have a bit more boost than 10psi. The guy's a little off.
    Being a 2003, you can get away with a TBE on the stock tune.
    Tell the guy to put back the stock map. Heres a link:
    RomRaider • View topic - Stock ROM List

    Buy a tuning solution, or borrow one. Tactrix 1.3 or 2.0 is my suggestions. But some people here like Cobb Accessports. With the CEL not working there may be other problems.
    A tactrix cable or Accessport can pull CEL codes.

    Yea I'll look into buying a tuning solution. May try tuning myself if it's not to complicated. Thanks for your help.

    You need to find a new tuner. The 2.0L WRX's were running 13.5psi from the factory peak boost tapering to 6psi at redline. Yes you need the pill if you are running the stock BCS.
