So I recently bought a 2015 WRX with a good bit of work done to it. It has a catted J pipe, charge pipe, catback exhaust, intake, among other mods that I'm still learning about. It also has a BOV which I'm looking to get removed ASAP (The afterfire is evident when letting off the throttle). The current tune is a stage 2+ etune. I'm in Miami at sea level if that matters, but according to my AP I'm making 22-23lbs of boost at full throttle. Is this safe? Should I have it retuned to a lower level of boost? Since this is a daily driver, I want to make sure that it's going to be reliable and don't want to worry about breaking a rod or anything. I'm also still learning a lot about these cars so any advice is appreciated. Thanks!

Is that peak boost or sustained. I've seen the fa20 guys post some pretty high peak numbers stock.

Most of it will depend on the tune. A data log would go a ways at helping determine what's going on and if it's safe.

maybe for some peace of mind, when you get the BOV removed, find a good reputable local tuner and have it Re tuned on the dyno. That way you know its good. $500 for a good solid safe tune is > than $5000 for a new shortblock

Stock Ive seen peak boost hit 22-24psi. NOT SUSTAINED, just spikes.
If your sustained boost is 23 Id be concerned.

You will probably see lower boost Target and peaks in lower gear so it's hard to tell.

A data log would be the most helpful. Just spouting off boost numbers won't help anything.
