I had had my car tuned in jersey and with stock turbo, injectors, fuel pump, and a perrin catless up-pipe and down pipe, aem short ram intake and full race 3" turbo back exhaust I put down 220awhp and after my new mods which my previous tuner said would make around 300-350awhp the ****ty tuner I went to said my car put down 250awhp @ 19psi( oh and they also told me after I made the appt to use my cobb ap as a tuner that they could only use open source)
I'm not a rocket scientist but these numbers don't really add up?!
And also on the ride home I tried playing with it and I went for full boost and it peaked then dropped to 15-16psi then shot back to 19 then back down to 15-16, I am so heated at this "conservative" tuner as he called himself that I want to flip!!! I spent $3,000+ for 30hp?!?
Any one have any insight?

Hey man, before I get started , I know all dynos read differently and my car has the 2.5. I have the same turbo, STI TMI, AEM CAI, Grimmspeed 3 port, catless dp, borla xr-1 exhaust and stock injectors. My car was tuned open source also. I put down 291hp & 333 ftlbs on 93 octane @ 18psi. There was another guy who had his bugeye tuned the same day, not sure of all his mods and it wasn't a blouch 16g xt but was a 16g put down like 245hp and 230ftlbs @ 23psi. Hope this helps some.
