But that's why you're "chasing the dragon" now. I've been told by multiple sources (tuners/personal) that trying an external or polished waste gate didn't help either. It'll just be one mod after another trying to correct it. Good luck to us all....

Gate worked for me. I was up in Vermont where the nights were cold and I didn't budge over my 19.5psi

At WOT in 4th and 5th too?

That's clutch if so...def nothing wrong with that. I know you mentioned it, but what gate did you go with again? I've def heard from multiple people that didn't solve their problem though. Same thing with the ebcs like I mentioned though. I've heard just as many say it solved it as didn't...

Just want to throw this out there.

Boost is dependent on a few things and controlling it should be discussed with your tuner always before you go buying parts and then chasing down fixes later. You could end up spending far less money if you just discuss it and have a plan if it does get out of control. You should not surprise your tuner with parts and then expect him to make them work. Some things that can effect boost are.....

Restrictor pill size: this can be modified accordingly by a larger or smaller hole in the Restrictor pill. In some cases it is removed all together.

Wastegate type: there are two kinds. Internal and external.

Wastegate spring: both types of wastegates are actuated by spring pressure which can be changed.

Actuated arm: some turbos have adjustable arms which Will effect boost when adjusted.

Wastegate port: the actual size of a internal Wastegate can be enlarged by porting to flow more gas. For an external Wastegate they come in different sizes.

Tuning: boost values can be changed via tuning.

Boost control solenoid: an aftermarket solenoid is generally considered to work better.

Exhaust flow: higher flow spins the turbo faster resulting in boost differences between some products. For example catted or non catted.

Boost Leaks/exhaust leaks: always make sure you have no leaks before getting tuned and after installing parts.

I just wanted to point out some things that should be considered when keeping boost in check because, some of these get overlooked often and can be substantially cheaper fixes.

First off thank you for the heads up RiotAct. I have heard good things about Wicked Innovations but I had a buddy who went to Bren and was happy so I figured I'd try him. Yes I agree a lot of our cars with similar mods have identical dyno results but I guess when you tune a bunch of stage 2 subarus all the time that would happen. Shame though since you live so close to him.

Secondly I think we are all agreeing to an extent that we are chasing our tails (or dragon) on this one. An EWG may work for someone and not someone else. I asked my technicians who have worked on Subbys for years and years and they said our cars aren't set up for it but some people can get away with it. I think considering I was WOT shifting into 5th on a cold night that it's almost my fault. Would I like it not to happen? Obviously, but the longer I own a turbo car the more I see how they are touchy. Amazing but touchy sometimes. No guarantees.

Thank you all for the input and if I happen to come across the secret formula I'll be sure to let everyone know. -Keep boosting
