Dude... You're going about this ALL kinds of wrong ways.

Why was your car limiting boost in the first place? Have you datalogged at all? What KIND of boost controller did you install, and from whom?

What are all of the details of this vehicle anyways?

I know of no mechanism to allow running 6 lbs boost (I hate non-metric units but that's another story). Baseline waste gate pressure exceeds this. Are you sure we're all on the same page?

Need more info homie...these aren't Neon SRT-4s...you can't just slap on a boost controller and dial it up. You're gonna seriously mess something up.

What year? What mods? Any tuning? Mileage?

:facepalm:

You didn't fix the issue at all. You stuck a bandaid on a wound that requires stitches.

An '03 WRX is targets ~13.5 PSI in stock form.

Remove the MBC and replace it with a stock BCS. Fix whatever is causing it not to hit target boost, then consider upping the wick.

I'd highly recommend finding a local tuner to help you out at this point, or start doing some heavy reading. You've got some serious problems there, aside from my joking earlier.

OP, just remember that whenever you mod air supply to the engine, you need a corresponding supporting mod for the fuel delivery.
