Default Accessport/Boost help!

Alright i know this problem has been talked over plenty of times, but i cant seem to fix it! I recently bought a cobb accessport for my 04 wrx, which also has a cat-back exhaust and a BOV. I put the base map & real time map as the stage1/91. When i put it on live boost read, the highest i ever get is 9.8 psi!! I see everyone posting their stock wrx's reaching 13-14 psi and mine is no where close! I have done the Ecu reset, but with no effect, i also looked for boost leaks but there are none that i can see, does anyone know what to do? (Wrx Stock boost is 13-14psi right?) thanks!

Maybe the boost leak is your BOV... Try running it with the stock one.

Don't have a BOV unless you have it properly tuned or have a turbo swap.

I would definitely swap the stock BOV back on and check the BOV gasket for leaks.

sounds like you are missing the restrictor pill in the 1 st little vacume hose off the turbo. Check if it's there, squeez it in the midle and you should feel it there.

Would have been helpful if you listed aftermarket boost control as one of your mods in the first place. Post 14 is probably dead on. This is a classic mistake new owners make, I hope you kept your original hoses.

By "everything" do you mean you followed the advice in post 14?
