Boost Problem??

Hi guys,

Whilst I popped to the shops today I noticed MY04 WRX was a bit sluggish

I've been running between 1.4-1.5 bar after the recent remap with no issues but today whilst looking at my peak boost I noticed it say 1.1-1.2 bar

I've done the usual pipe work check under the hood and can't see anything wrong, would this be more ECU related? Or am I missing something simpler?

Current parts, full decat not including the downpipe, green panel filter, turbosmart vee port VA BOV & a remap to suit.

Any help would be appreciated

Re: Boost Problem??

Haven't noticed any poor fuel to be honest....always run V-power. Just wonder if the boost solenoid might need cleaning? It doesn't sound like it running in limp mode as its still holding around 1.2 bar. All the pipe work looks tight and can't see anything out of the usual....maybe give my mapper a call?
