DAM questions!

anyway i tuned my car to stage 1 like a month (currently working with a mech on this) ago and my DAM is still at 11's. i have read that my dam should be going to 16 after a few minutes, i have also reasd that it takes weeks. just wondering how long everyone elses car has taken to learn this value..
also does anyone have a healthy 02-03 wrx stage 1 datalog i could look at?

Is your mechanic a tuner? Please....find a tune shop that knows subies and have them look at it. That way they can fix it and verify it. I don't know why this problem is taking months to fix.

You don't have a DAM you have an IAM...

...and on a new flash it starts at 16 and goes down if your ECU sees knock.

You can see if you can find a reputable dealer in your area and take it to them. But, I'm not sure if they can read what is causing your IAM to be lower. Unless you have a noticeable problem with your car that they can diagnose.

i got a log right after the flash like 10-20 miles after and it was at 11's and it was still at 11's after like 50 more miles. so u r satying ther eis knock potential? and there is a leak in my bov causing lag under heavier load?
