Re: wrx boost

depends on the car realy, basicly when its mapped the mapper will push the boost as high as he can safley. taking into account amount of fuel, timing, etc etc etc

i wouldn;t worry to much about max boost myself

Re: wrx boost

ah right, i'd take it back off again then. Although not sure why that would cause it, ther ento that much more flowing thans standard filter.

basicly if you alter the boost it needs mapping for it
