Cobb AP Stage 2

I recently installed my cobb downpipe a couple of weeks ago. So i am at stage 2 right now. This might be a dumb question, but where is the boost supposed to be at in 1st gear? i don't feel much of a pull in 1st as to 2nd and so on. 2nd gear the boost goes all the way up to 16. while in first gear it goes only to 1. sorry if its kindve hard to understand. and thanks for the help!

If you dont feel much of a pull in 1st gear and u are at 1 psi something is def wrong. My car (same year as yours) also stage 2 pulls STRONG in 1st and dont quote me but I think I'm at around 10-12 psi in first and from there on between 15-16 tapering down to 10.

You will only see max boost in first if you litterally floor it. Considering the amount of pain you will be putting on your clutch and tranny I would probably advise against it...

That being said...
You should be seeing more then 1psi though for sure! I think I see around 10-12 psi in first and 15 or so in second. Its hard for me to say exactly because when I am flooring the pedal my eyes are NOT on my gauges. 1st gear pulls strong though.

I would check all your bolts again and make sure they are torqued down, after that I would probably check all my IC hoses since you most likely removed that in order to get the DP on. If all else fails... use the AP and reflash stock and see if you are getting your normal boost values once you are back to stock ECU. If you are... try to reflash stage2 again, perhaps something went wrong the first time you did it. You never know.

Anyway... best of luck!

How are you getting the boost??

Through the Accessport or a Boost Gauge??
