2008 WRX w/ vf52 and AP tune BOOSTING TOO HIGH

Ok, so I have my project just about done, got the tune in there and Its still boosting too high!
I flipped the T- tubes that connect up to the turbo, that didnt change a thing. Im boosting not even to the fullest throttle at 22psi!!!!!! The tuner said its the tubes are wrong, WHAT ALL TUBES COULD BE WRONG? do I need a t-post tubes with pill for an 09 wrx now? or what?

Please help!!!!! This has been a long and stressful year and I just wanna have my car back.

Who did the tuning? You and the AP? Because there are maps for cars that over boost now on the stock map.

Clark Tuner Tuning did the map. He kinda came off as cocky and kept saying my tubes are wrong, everything is 100% right i know, I even double check. I think the map is wrong or something. I just run the map and then put my manual boost controller back in.

Have you checked that the VF52 uses the same restrictor pill as the TD04? That could be your problem, the pill hole could be too small, not letting enough air get to the bcs.

Honestly just get a 3-port and you'll have no issues, just need a retune.

Thats what ive been trying to find out. lol. Ive been emailing the guys from COBB and Perrin going over every possible thing that could be wrong. But honestly im leaning on the pill thing too, but i cant find any for sure answers.

I'd get a 3 port bcs and a new tune as well. Plus, the pill probably isn't the same. Ask a dealership if you have to.

Yah thats what Time from COBB thinks it might be too. I'll give subaru a call tomorrow about it. Thanks for your input everyone!

I'll look into the 3-ports and im planning on going to get a tune this summer in Chicago at COBB. =)

It rips with no DP and no bigger fuel pump.

You know CAM does good etunes. He did my last 2 subies (non etunes)and a bunch of my buddies down here.

CAMTuning.com - Subaru, Mitsubishi, and Nissan Engine Management and Dyno Tuning Solutions - Home

Perhaps the best tuner for your car.
I didn't know Clark was still doing AP tunes.
