Hello all my first post,

To introduce myself... I am Mark:thumbup:

This being my first Subaru purchase I have to say I am very impressed with the cars overall build quality and power, that being said it just seems like it does not have the power I would expect in the two top gears. I t may be just me but it seems like the boost is at a reduced level, is this normal?

I have the COBB lightened pulley installed as the only mod, which I do like BTW.

Sorry, I left out the important stuff...

2011 WRX base model, no boost gauge.

I would suggest getting one. That way you will actually know if there is a problem.

I will get one for sure. What boost should I be seeing in that range?

What speed are you at when you're trying to accelerate in 4th? Unless you're going over 80 already, you may just be over geared. The boost doesn't really start to come on until around 4k rpm.

Why exactly do you say you like the pulley?

Because the pulley does absolutely nothing, and certainly nothing you could ever notice.

When my car was stock I felt it was pretty weak even in 3rd gear and lacked top end. It's a completely different car after adding a full turbo back exhaust, AEM intake, and Cobb AP.
However, being an awd 4 cylinder the wrx/sti is not known for it's top end power.

Reduction in rotational mass equals quicker rev up and down of the engine. I know it produces zero horsepower and torque, but it will help the engine make more efficient use of the power it already produces.

That is the answer I was hoping to get :)
