You might want to invest in a boost controller or some sort, you are throwing quite a lot at the stock programming. It wouldn't surprise me if it can't control boost/fuel properly.

I have a suggestion that you send the A/F and fuel gauge back. Honestly the A/F is totally worthless and I really don't think you need a fuel pressure gauge. If you insist on the fuel pressure find one that will mount under your hood. I would suggest for your setup a boost gauge, EGT and a oil pressure(mostly as an indicator of when the engine is up to temp and is ready for WOT).

I would also send the uppipe back or shelf it for now until you're ready to upgrade the turbo and engine management is available. You're going to get some additional turbo lag with most aftermarket uppipe due to the increased internal diameter of pipe. I don't think you'll gain anything worth the spool time with a stock turbo.

i hpoe you have an extra $1000 saved for a UTEC ecu... that wayall those mods would work correctly... or about 400-600 for an AFC/ BC and such. Im waiting until after UTEc to start doing serious mods (TBE, headers, bigger turbos, FMIC, etc). As I dont want to kill my engine (although Im sure Subaru knows what they are doing and have a good ecu built). I'd just love the extra data loggin, fuel/timing curves, knock sensors, etc etc... You should really look into getting one.

well if they had the UTEC ecu available i would have ordered it ...according to the techs at UTEC they will not have it for about 3-4 weeks.. and on the gauges i was debating it for a while on which to order but now that i thought about it more and more ..i probably will be ordering differant ones..probably the ones that you suggested..
