I recently noticed that my DAM is at 0 in my 2011 Wrx. It’s stage 2, full straight pipe.. It has a go fast bits blow off valve. I have also just had the short block rebuilt. It has 3,000 miles, and haven’t had any issues so far. But I was driving up to a car meet that was about 30 minutes away, and it was running perfect. Perfect boost, perfect dam perfect everything. But then at about halfway on my way home I stopped at a buddies house and I gave him a ride and noticed my DAM had dropped to 0 and I was only pushing 8 psi. I have researched other forums, google, almost every where I could think but can’t find a similar issue that I am having. I have found that other people have had similar symptoms from using gas stations they normally don’t use. And I actually did use a different gas station than the one I always go to. I usually go to maverick and fill up with 91. But instead I went to holiday and filled up with 91. Not sure if this is the problem, but hoping it’s something minor. If anyone has any feedback or thoughts it’s much appreciated

The car runs pretty much perfect besides the boost leak. Idles perfect, when getting on the freeway drives just fine. But I haven’t done a boost leak test. I did check for any signs of a loose hose or any type of leak. But I haven’t done a smoke test or anything like that.

The car is back to normal. I babied it, and pretty much granny shifted. Didn’t hit boost for a good couple days and the DAM relearned it’s way back up to 1.000/1.000. I’m still not sure what the cause of it was. But I’m just glad it’s back to normal.
