Default Datalog help, car does not feel right...

Hey seasoned log readers,

Car: 2012 WRX only mod is Nameless axleback save for the AP.

So I installed a stage 1 tune today from my AP. Once I was done I made some 3rd gear runs to see how it felt. It did not feel good, the car seemed less responsive from tip in and pulled worse than stock did. I did not take the run to 6500 due to the way it felt. I made a few runs but it never felt quite right. Might anyone be able to see anything bad happening here. I noticed one thing in one in the form of lag, which looking at the log it did not build boost very fast. Boost leak?

Thanks for any help!

check the coupler between your throttle body and intercooler. its a very common problem for the '12 cars... they tend to come loose.

Okay. I just received an email from Eric at TP telling me to check this. I will be looking into it and hopefully resolving the issue tonight. Thanks Eric for the awesome customer service as always!!!

Just an update. I checked the TB to I/C hose and the band clamp was not that tight although it was not out of place at all. I tightened it up and took more logs. I think the D/A was pretty ugly the day I logged as it felt better the next day. Eric suggested checking the bpv but he thought the new logs looked good. Today the D/A is way down and it definitely pulled harder. I also think my seatofthepants-o-meter is off since I'm used to a stage 2 2005 Evo so until I go stage 2 I need to lower my expectations a bit. As long as my logs look good I'll dyno it then go stage 2 and dyno again. Car is running smooth so I can't complain, and Eric is awesome as is Bill from the looks of things.

Post new logs for us to review if you'd like. However, if Eric said you're good to go. then Im sure you are.

Also, if you're trying to compare to an evo, regardless of year of evo, then yea, your car is slower. Evo's respond to Mods really really well.
