      Hello,

      I just got the APR Stage 1 tune, and my first impressions are great. The car went from "oh thats pretty quick" to "okay, now I have to pay attention to what I'm doing" A HUGE difference in mid range torque.

      However...

      I'm not reaching requested boost levels, and my N75 Duty Cycle is pegged at 96% (minus a short dip at 3k RPM) I'm trying to figure out if I have a boost leak. BTW, I have Revision D DV Valve, everything else is stock

      Does anyone have some stage 1 logs with requested boost, actual boost, and N75 Duty cycle? It would be much appreciated.

      Link to my data logs (download then open with excel)

      Looks like a leak. Request and actual should stay pretty close to being on top of each other. Duty cycle is usually much lower.

      The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

      Thanks for the info Arin. I'll post what I find to be the cause. I'm fairly certain the leak was there before the tune but there was enough headroom in the system to compensate. I was able to reach and maintain stock requested boost with 55-60% n75 duty cycle.

      So is that spread sheet consistent with a leak? You seem a little slow to build boost, and then actual bleeds off more rapidly requested, but for about 1400 rpm in the mid-range it seems to closely match requested, and you are maxing out at just over 17 psi - which I think is about right for an APR st. 1? Also, what is the deal with the N75 - should it be showing partial values even under full throttle?
