Post by STISTUNNA on Tue Apr 16, 2013 11:11 pm

Sup everyone... so i'm driving down dyer and a Camaro starts piping and trying to get all crazy on me. so I switch to sport sharp and let it rip. Unfortunatelly i was only boosting 8.6lbs when I should of been around 18lbs Sad I really baby my car and today's events are kicking my a$$! Anyone ever experienced anything similar?

I bet throttle body inlet came loose from intercooler. Common issue with 08+ wrx. CEL, high pitch squealing, sputtering or jerking?

My snyde answer would be that that's the beauty of Subarus. Twisted Evil Now all joking and smack talk aside, A big enough boost leak in general will cause this. Check all clamps and hoses.

thanks for input guys. I checked the clamps for any obvious issues and nothing. then it hit me... I took a drive out to Arizona a couple of weeks ago and i had mapped it to economy mode and totally forgot to revert back to stage 1. SOooo I reflashed to stage 1 and problem was solved Smile thanks for your time and input and yes this was a NOOB moment for me.

HAHAHA! It happens. When I had my 08 I installed a Forge BPV along with a FMIC, turbo, yadda yadda. Anyways, took it for test drive and was only hitting about 6-7 psi. Looked everything over, took it back out, same story. Turned out I forgot to put a spring in the BPV so it was running off the wastegate.
