ok heres the deal...i'm a euro car guy but my good friend has a 02 wrx with 80,000km on the clock, completely stock. It seems to be overboosting but i'm led to believe 15psi is the norm for this car. After 14psi it starts detonating and drops off hp dramatically! all the boost management systems seem to be doing their part including the waste gate and all related plumbing. If you feather the throttle and bring the boost down it makes power like it should without any misfire or hesitation but at WOT @5500 rpm it sounds like an M3 running on regular ...any help would be appreciated...I'm a mechanic but this is my first attempt on a boosted fuji thanks guys
