This is very good info. Thank you very much. Not sure why everyone else on the internet says everyone on NASIOC is an asshat (lulz).

The 5th gen Legacy platform is IMO very unique and there is very little real world experience around unlocking what the true potential really is (only sold in the US for 3 years and I'm only aware of 3 people who have done turbo upgrades).

Really curious to see how unique things like the following start to behave once you "go big": OEM ELH, Dual AVCS, bottom mount turbo (no up-pipe, full boost by 2800rpms) and 6 speed WRX transmission (5 speed WRX with shaved cogs to fit 6 gears in)

Already added a boost gauge and will likely add wideband and oil pressure (but might pull them from the AP real-time initially).

Definitely on my "to do" list

Nobody has experience turning 5th gens and there is no open source. I called IAG about tuning the other day and they've had 1 5th gen there ever and it was just being tuned for an exhaust. There is no open source for the 5th gen so don't really have an option there (I'm already running Cobb AP with 3" AVO TBE).
