Where is the boost gauge sensor hose? I don't see a t-section on your BPV hose for one, which is typically where one would hook up to. Take a pic of as much of the hose that connects to the top of the BPV.

rather than replace the parts you have and buy an accessport to put a tune on it,
take the car to a tuner and get it tuned for the parts you've got.

stay the hell away from boost until you can get this sorted out. Even if it turns out to just be a bad gauge, you need to be sure that the thing is tuned. Intake and exhaust + No tune = no bueno.

I agree. I will take it to Titan Motorsports here in Orlando. Im sure it is tuned cause wouldnt the a/f be crazy and would pull like ****? Someone put some money in it before me and i think they went with a very aggressive tune. All im trying to do is reduce the boost for longevity, not that its drives crazy or anything. I will report back with my findings!

thanks again

That location does not look right. Also, I would either get an AP and test the boost from that, or re-route the boost guage to the proper location and check again, and on top of those two things I would get a proper tune. As many have said before, stay away from boost 25 is pushing the limits of a lot of stuff.

First thing you need to do is verify that your boost gauge is reading correctly, I do not believe for one minute your stage 2 WRX is actually pushing 25psi.

Car was bought from a chevy dealership and they didnt know much about the car. I would like to get in touch with the owner of it so i could ask but not easy to get that info. or is it?

If I were to buy a map created by perrin for my intake, could i use the Cobb ap to load it on my car? and set up a new tune?

Id like to just buy the cobb ap and use a shelf map or one that perrin created. They say if my dp is catless, it could cause over boosting issues. i believe there is a cat on the dp tho

OP your top photo of the "t" behind the turbo goes to the boost solenoid. The second photo shows the BPV. Follow the small tubing coming off the BPV and see if theres a "t" somewhere in that line. Most people tap into that line for the boost gauge. btw push the tubing up tighter on the barb and put a cable tie on it to make sure it doesn't pop of.

like others said take it to a shop and let them see what you got on the car 1st. the accessport is going to cost you 500 bux, and then you could run the ots maps, but im not sure cobb has one for a perrin intake. or you get a map from torquedperformance.com, but you would need a tatrix cable to load it onto the car.

Looking at this photo, it appears that the t-fitting is connected to the turbo, but not the IWG. What hose is connected to the IWG? Could you take a better angled photo of this area? I'm kinda curious to see what hoses are connected to those two nipples.

ok soo....this looks like it is the boost gauge wiring? goes into firewall and has a hose end that goes into the "T" in the next pic


the hose off the bpv goes into a braided thicker line that i cant follow

I looked and the hose is connected to inlet of turbo loops around to wastegate and then into the "T" where another hose goes under the manifold..

One port on the boost controller should go to the turbo inlet and the other to the t-fitting which attaches to the turbo and IWG. This is a different boost controller, but the hoses are run the same:
hose hookup

Like bigrob stated, the stock TMIC and BPV weren't designed those high boost levels with their plastic bits.

FWIW, I have a TP stage 3+ build and several other parts and I'm only doing 22psi on stock internals. I'm expecting the engine to give out fairly soon.
You're expecting your TP stage 3 car to "give out"? You should be fine.
