Hey guys ive had my 03 bugeye for about 2 months now i love it. It has a Jdm Ej205 vf34 turbo catless everything, invidia down, magnaflow cat back. I live in southern part of missouri Springfield area. Im new to turbo i was wondering what everyone runs for boost numbers. Im currently at 12 and was wondering what my peak should be i have yet to have it tuned since ive owned it so im not sure her capabilities. I plan on getting a cobb then having it tuned. But anyway hi lol. Oh i also have the pink sti injectors...

Welcome aboard!
If you have pinks and a VF34, someone's already had to do a tune on the at some point, to make it run. Though, it's possible someone used a Cobb AccessPort to dump an "off the shelf" VF34 map in, at some point in the past. (I ran it for a while with my 2002 wagon) Do you know anything about the tuning that's been done to the car, prior to your ownership?

I have no idea the tune but i see a couple screw holes by the obd2 port like there was a cobb mounted there also the odb2 port was just loosely hanging there like it was plugged into something. The car runs amazing no cel no bogging runs very well. I know what parts are on it but as far as a tune im cluless. The tuners in my area (awd capable) wont tube cobb they want me to get aem. I called around and they give me some shpeel about not being able to access subaru data. Idk... i just need a base to run off of like whats stock boost ranges. The guy i got it from had it set to 9psi when i asked him why he said thats just what he had it set at. No reason. Like im a total new as far as turbo and Subaru but all i do is research on my freetime. So far ive learned a ton from the forums but as far as talking to a human and learning the does and donts i havent found much luck.

Can the previous owner fill in any of the gaps about the current tune? It could be helpful to you.

No hes an idiot he bought the car rear ended someone repaired the damage and sold it to me. I just wish i could find who built the car pick his brain. I even hit up pfispeed from youtube and he said his awd dyno is not hooked up yet and to buy a cobb.
