09 Turbo ?
I recently got my first Rex, everytime I get in it I have a blast. So my question is I have had it for two weeks now, I am noticing not as must boost as I had in the past, yes kicks in around 3.5k and I can hear the turbo kick in, but it feels like I am not gettin the full amount of boost????

More that likely you are just getting used to the power...if you think there is a problem have the Dealer check it out while it is still free to do so.

i agree with Nick....did u break it in before you beat the snots out of it?

turmic 08-18-2009 06:33 PM

Yeah, I hope you broke it in and didn't spin a bearing or something. Get it checked if you don't think its just in your head.

I noticed my WRX kicks butt with 94octane fuel, are you buying low grade gas?

dumdum 08-19-2009 02:13 PM

Do you have a boost gauge? Your "butt dyno" doesn't classify as accurate data........

PdxRex 08-19-2009 02:45 PM

I am not sure exactly sure how the car should have been drivin in the breakin period? Yes I only use 91, (cant find anything higher except sometimes at the track I can get some), no to a boost gauge but looking for one, and dumdum, I agree my butt dyno is that accurate but cheap.
No how big will weather play a part in my turbo. I live in OPregon so some day well lately have been 90+ with about 40% humidity.

My car was tuned on a cold rainy day, here in WA, the car was set for 20 PSI. The week following my tune I was hitting 22PSI when it was cold and wet out. Now that it has warmed up Im hitting my peak boost of 20 PSI. I know the weather does matter, to what affect I honestly cant be for certain.

booosted09 08-19-2009 03:12 PM

i'm pretty sure cold=fast and hot=not so fast. those are my scientific calculations. oh yea...and 93 octane helps too

mosc 08-19-2009 03:16 PM

Humidity matters, but only when it's hot. When it's really hot, humidity really matters. Altitude matters too. As do 100 other things I'm leaving off.

booosted09 08-19-2009 03:24 PM

yea its been about 90 degrees here with about 70 percent humidity and my car hates it.

Weve had weather identical to that lately in Tennessee and it doesnt seem to affect my 09

I have a question reguarding upgrades to my 09 WRX also. I plan to just to add a SPT Intake and SPT Exhust to my car. When doing so do I need to get the ECU flash?

nick4592 08-20-2009 04:21 AM

Dont bother with the intake..dont need it or should you want won't "need" a tune until you change boost or fuel
