Default Stage 2 map!

Hello, I have a 2004 wrx,

TBE exhaust
Cobb sf intake
Turboxs rfl bov
Cobb AP

I am currently on the stage 2 93 oct HWG map. I am getting 16.4lbs of boost and it feels pretty quick, I just know I can get more power of my set up. I live too far away from any protuner and have a budget. I am looking for a bit more power and I am wondering if I am able to tune out the boost restrictions in first and second gear. I can only get .7MPa tops in first and about 1MPa tops in second. Any help would be appreciated! Maybe a e-tune or able to send someone my data logs to fine tune. Let me know!

You need a 3 port boost controller like Grimspeed. The stock boost controller won't let you hit target boost in first and usually second gear.

1. You need to visit http://www.clarkturnertuning.com/ and contact Clark about an e-tune. Let him know that I am your great step-uncle and odds are, he will give you a discount. Everything you want or need to know can be done by Clark.

2. You are NOT supposed to get full boost in the first two gears.....open your mind and imagine.....air flow over your intercooler in the first two gears is low and your boost is high....is that a good or bad thing?

Instead of focusing on boost numbers, look at your MAF values. I bet you will see that you still hit the same airflow as higher gears. Maybe a little less in the lower RPM areas since RPM is going up so fast.

If you really want more boost in the lower gears only, then use yours brakes while you are WOT. You will "slow down" the high rate that RPM goes up and make it more like a higher gear. Then, guess what, boost will build just like it does in higher gears.

If you want gear specific boost control too bad, your car does not have it. Datalog your MAF values and see what you get.

You need to ask Clark Turner this question, not us.

Go to Clark Turner's website, you will find some good information there about the process, how he wants datalogs, etc.

I actually texted him, he sent two replies and when I asked if I needed a 3 port he never responded.

You do need a 3port, but Clark Turner may like them better. I do not know.

I do not know if the RFL can be configured to recirculate or not. If not, I would recommend ditching the RFL and using a BPV instead. BOV's make more noise (especially yours) than a BPV but with the SF intake and a BPV, you will still have the "BOV" noise and the engine will be happier.

Clark told me not to do a 3-port for my stage 2 tune, FYI.

Okay well I have a good deal on a grimmspeed 3 port. ($60) I'll probs just get it and sit on it if I ever decide to dyno protune. Eventually I want to go vf39. Just tuning by Clark turner to make me happy till then, (or a week and I'll get bored of that too) I'm power hungry

I think he'd probably tune for it if you're getting a deal and want to put it on. He just told me it would be a waste of money at that point, but I wasn't getting a good deal or anything.

But these are all things you need to be emailing him about. He's a helpful and very knowledgeable guy.
