AP issues, low boost

Hey all,

So i've searched High and Low for this but nothing seems to come up, I recently went stage II with my AP, I have a cobb intake, cobb catted dp, no name exhaust. Flashed to stage II and everything seemed ok, was boosting 13ish psi of boost which was a little under, I just put that to maybe a heavy waste gate. But when i put in my uppipe boost wont go over 11.7 psi not higher than that in every gear. Ive stopped going into boost as much as I can because im afraid it might be flashed wrong or something else is wrong. Any one have any ideas of what this could be?

I also replaced all gaskets, exhaust manifolds, both uppipe and downpipe with grimmspeed so i dont think i have a boost leak. Thanks in advance for the information.

Are you sure the map loaded?

Try reflash back to stock, then unplug battery(not neccessary) but I reccomend, then reflash your stage two.....

It sounds like you are hitting boost cut. or somthing....

Omg your car is ****ed!!!

(just kidding)

I take it your using just a basic off the shelf map provided by cobb? If so, be SURE your using the maps made specifically for owners in Arizona, California, and Nevada. They are located under Cobb's download list of maps with the letters "ACN" in the beginning. If you did not flash one of these maps and accidently used the ones made for dufferent states, your car will react exactly as your saying it is.
