Sorry, not a thread about boost creep but I think I have seen some of the top Subaru tuners state that a factory turbo cannot even flow enough air to cause boost creep.

This seems to be a highly debated subject.

Maybe if you push the factory turbo well beyond VE it will creep?

The downpipe looks very nice and if I was in the market, I would rather pay an american company an extra couple $100.

Grimmspeed, will your catless downpipe cause boost creep on a factory turbo with a good tune?

I ran catless with an OTS Cobb Stage 2 with 0 creep.
