need help!! 07 wrx overboost!!
« on: June 13, 2015, 07:35:36 PM »
  :-( :-(
Ok guys  and girls im running a 07 wrx with 77k on it
I have perrin divorced 3"catted downpipe,spt catback,spt short ram,3" silicone turbo inlet,cobb 3 port bcs,cobb AP v3,turbo xs 50/50 bpv.also fidanza lightweight flywheel and exedy oe replacement clutch.
Ok so hear is the problem i just put the 3port,downpipe,and AP on today and flashed stage 2 map+ebcs and took it for a ride and it was hitting 17.46 psi (to high!!)
And cel would come on if i go wot and get code p2044? I think(wastgate)so i removed the 3 port and put stock one back on.
Reflashed stage 2.took out again and did same thing it just took a little bit longer to do so.so now ??
And when i baught 3 port from cobb they said shouldn't need a protune with our stage 2 +ebcs map .
Does anyone know if cobb can customize  a map for you and do you think they can solve the problem .
Thanks for any input

Are there LWG maps available to you? If so, look at them, If not, contact Cobb, since in addition to the product, you paid for support.

I put a divorced Perrin dp on a kids legacy once, and the plate that separates the waste gate from the turbine wasn't placed just right, and resulted in holding down the waste gate .. Ended up having to take a grinder and grind off almost an 1/8 inch to allow the waste gate to open.

Just a thought. Not necessarily the problem.
