Default Stage 4 hitting just 12psi in 4th gear...

My friend recently upgraded his stage 2 WRX to stage 4.

AP VF34 map
VF34 ported
Perrin turbo inlet
Borla header
catless TBE
Stock intake
Stock T-hose and "pill" from TD04

Now, problem is that he's only able to hit 12psi at max... that's what's read on AP live meter and defi boost gauge. Can someone point to where he should look as far as fixing the boost problem? He doesn't hear any whining or high pitch sounds which would point to potential leak problem...

Your help is appreciated.

- Can I get
A wayo


I'd point him to a protuner to have a custom map made for those extra parts he's running. Unless he wants to take them off and get back to Cobb's spec.

He'll make more power with a tune, way more.

over ported turbo, pre turbo exhaust leak, or weak wastegate. try a helper spring and check for leaks

data log. see if your ECU is hanging the WG open at 100%. I'd bet on a boost leak somewhere. See the EM forum sticky's for the DIY leak finder.
