DO NOT READ THIS SKIP TO MY LATEST POST.

Today I have replaced my boost solenoid. I went to go see if it had fixed my over boosting, which it did. I attempted a WOT pull and threw cylinder 2&4 misfires as well as some pfffee code. Here is the log, the power feels sort of choppy almost and a bit sluggish. Maybe someone can point me in the right direction from here. Also I am stage 2 normal map + cobb sf. What I have done, replaced fuel pump+filter. One step colder plugs. Air filter. Cleaned MAF. Cleaned IACV. Boost solenoid. I want to swap the coils and see if that changes the code to 1&3 but im too nervous to attempt again in fear I will break something. You would never know anything was wrong until you go WOT. Can anyone go through this short log and what im hoping someone can point out an injector issue.

Year/model/mods/mileage? Are you running a Cobb OTS tune that's designed for that intake? When did this problem start happening, is it happening all the time, more info needed.

Your document isn't public and an injector issue isn't going to show up in a datalog. You would have to test the injectors/harness.

fixed.

I can drive the car fine its only when I go WOT and hit full boost.

Its a 2005 WRX. I have already read all the misfire threads and have done just about everything they all recommend. I have also consulted with my local tuner and he said my injectors might not be sealed properly and sucking air under load. I cant see this happening because after I installed my new block the seals on the injectors were replaced and I am sure they seated properly.

Well considering when the engine is under load the turbo is producing positive manifold pressure. Air would be forced out,not sucked in. Your MAF readings look pretty low and your IAM/DAM is 12. It should be 16. That would indicate a good amount of knock. Without any wideband data you are shooting in the dark.

Do you have any idea why my DAM would be low like that? Could my MAF readings be low because of a bad MAF?

Here is another log on cobbs 300 map. About 2 miles after an ecu reset too.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0As31ISFr9MWZdDVHMFFRWEg1RnBRbktwRUNGcWJpR1E#gid=0

From what I have read my DAM starts at 12 then grades up or down whether it is happy or not. It was about a 5 mile drive.

I did log the tgv sesnors because for some reason when I reflashed to the older map I through a tgv code. I believe it is the code for the sensor near the turbo. I broke that one when installing a new turbo replaced it and the code went away. For some reason the AP will not read the code though. Just says no codes. I unchecked all the tgv sensors in access tuner and the code was gone so that's how I confirmed it. I did reflash back though because I do not know if I should be running with the tgvs disabled.

Yes if you reset the ECU DAM will be 12 on Cobb's maps and 8 on stock a ROM. So logging is worthless immediately after an ECU reset because of that and you fuel trims being reset as well. This is why I set my IAM/DAM to default to 16 after an ECU reset. Use an REAL OBDII scanner to read the code. The AP sucks as a scanner. The Google Doc is not accessible...........

OK after a while of driving my dam is up to 15, I will do another log on my way home from work.

Im not willing to do another WOT pull until I know im safe just under normal driving conditions. What do you recommend logging over the default?

I got around to fixing my CEL's. Just did another log on my drive home from work. Just a very conservative drive, on the default Cobb parameters.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0As31ISFr9MWZdEUwSjBldlNmaE5mS2R4RnhTOHdzNWc#gid=0

I have very basic knowledge of what all these numbers actually mean, but a few of the numbers I have seen here sort of freaked me out. Just want someone who knows what all this means and can tell me if its running ok and it is time to try some more logs at WOT.

It's fine.....do WOT. Most cars don't have issues when thye are driving around in vacuum. Mainly because there is no load on the engine. With out any load the potential for prolems is exremly low. Unless you have done something extremly stupid like install a 3" MAF housing or 550+cc injectors with no tuning. You also have paid for Cobb's technical assistance since you purchased thier product. I would probably be contacting them. They also have some info on thier website:
