Default avc type r boost controller

New to the subaru. I have a Avc type r boost controller installed and im trying to learn it. Has any body has exsperince with this? I bought it mainly to have low and hight boost. i dont want to give it hell all the time when i go flat out. I bought the car with it tuned already and a/f's are 10.0-10.5 under boost. Just to give some info. on the car. it has invidia down pipe with magnaflow exhaust, up pipe, cobb short ram. Runs around 19psi on stock turbo. I dont want to go any higher in boost, just want to run off of the wastgate when driving around town and be able to run high boost when i get to the track. My issue is that i can get it to run low boost. 1-3rd it runs around 14psi. Then 4th it stays around 19psi. i switch from high boost to low boost and it does the same. does not change my max boost? Any ideas? Thanks for the help.....

I cant get the car to stop going to 19psi with i go into 4th full throttle. I set the controller to 14.5psi. Im thinking the reason for this is because of the tune that cme with the car. Im using avc typr r boost controller.

You're using avc typr r boost controller. We got it.

Attempting to re-read your post I've gleaned the following information.

Your car came with a tune already on it along with a bunch of mods.
You don't know what the tune is.
You added an AVC Type R Boost Controller to give you the option of running high/low boost given the situation.
You haven't retuned....

If that's all correct, I think the answer is clear. Go get it re-tuned.

use your right foot for boost control. If you don't want to hit 19psi in 4th, then dont floor it in 4th.

You need a low boost map to switch to. You can not just simply turn down the boost in these cars. You need a low boost tune, a high boost tune, and an access port to switch between them.

As stated, OP talk to a professional (before you blow up your engine).

Also, if you fill out this (with you general location) we'll be able to point you in the direction of a good professional to talk to.

did someone say AVC-R? welcome to 2001

but seriously, its your duty settings that are shooting you up to 19psi.
The lowest setting should be wastegate spring pressure.

check this out if you insist to use it. It can still be an effective tool if you or your tuner doesn't mind tuning it independently of the ecu, but obviously there are more tuning options now days.
