Your DAM is 0.56... I don't know of any map that starts that low. Is this Cobb OTS? Are you running the 91 or 93 map? It looks like you may have learned knock. You need to add knock count to really find out. But I'm saying you have something seriously wrong with your car right now.

You should put back the stock intake, and reflash the map and then do another pull. The intake definitely could be the cause of your DAM drop. To be safe, I would start with the 91 map just to see if you have any knock and then go to the 93 map if you don't see significant knock.

DAM is still 0.56 on that log which is really bad. You probably had the intake on that pull as well. Would do what I mentioned in order to troubleshoot from there.

I am curious if you were running the map with the Cobb or AEM intake? Or just the stock intake map. You should definitely be custom tuned if you aren't running one of those intakes with the corresponding map.

Definitely want to make sure you have an intake that is compatible with the map otherwise potential load errors can occur which can cause problems with fueling and timing (which can certainly cause knock).

For your car, we have 3 sets of maps for different intakes - Stock, Cobb SF, and AEM. If you are going back to the stock intake, make sure you reflash the stock intake version of your map.

Logs look good. I would leave off the knock sum per cylinder because of the limited bandwidth issue through the OBD2 port. I would look into the 93 map if you aren't running it already.

I personally use NGK Iridiums, which is what Subaru supposedly uses.

Yes sir stock intake on 91 octane but this morning I flashed to 93 and dam stays at .8 I will have to do logs when I'm off work but a question for you bill... Would I have to do logs if I switch to the fuel economy map?

Some of the maps may start at a lower initial DAM after you reflash them or reset the ECU. Get some logs after a bit of driving to see if the DAM has advanced up to 1.0. If not, or if it drops below 0.80, then I would reflash the 91 octane map. For the fuel economy map, you don't necessarily need logs, but remember that is it not designed for agressive driving.

If you're looking to save gas, just stay outta boost and coast when possible. Do not is the fuel economy map, you won't enjoy and as mentioned, not designed for any aggressive driving. The difference in gains between the fuel economy map and cautious driving are minimal to no difference at all.

There's no requirement to data log, but once you've determined that the tune is running well initially, I would at least log anytime something notable changes with your car (additional mods, conditions it is driven under, etc.) or when you notice something is not right (feels down on power, hesitation/stumble, etc.)

Up-pipe is fine for stage 1.

You are overboosting in these logs and there's also some knock. I would download the low wastgate LWG version of the stage 2+AEM 91 map and reflash to the car. Run this 91 map while still putting 93 octane in the car. This will give you a little more margin for knock resistance. The LWG version of the map should bring boost down. Get additional data logs to confirm.
