Thanks guys. This car did make good torque. His supervisor has a STI and after riding in this WRX, I got a phone call from him asking where he can buy a turboback and retune the car!
Have you found that leaning the car out tends to prevent low to mid load knock? When I first started the fueling, it was around 10.1 at peak torque, and with only 8-9 degrees of advance. the car didn't like it all and would knock here and there. leaning it almost a full point caused that knock to disappear.
I'd go leaner up top, but Oklahoma's pump fuel is notoriously bad. We're also at 1,000 feet elevation so airflow suffers a tad (14.0 psia)
