Anyways, is there any recommendation on anything else I should be on the lookout for? I've posted a datalog below, it's hard for me to redline to 3rd because of the area I live in, but I don't know if it's even worth it since the problem is pretty apparent. It's a stock, Stage 1 (ACN 91 v310) WRX (with SPT intake). Thanks guys.
When you are that far down on boost, it definitely points to a mechanical issue and the log isn't going to tell which mechanical issue, so you have run down the line.
