For those of you that are running apr s2 does it feel like you have no power above 4500rpms.......i......... or did i break something

The reason i ask is I raced a few dif cars and i dominate all the way up untill i hit the high rpms.....boost leak? how much boost are u guys running in 4th gear at 60mph when you punch it..... or what psi are you spiking and at and what are u dropping to

Have you upgraded your diverter valve? It's very possible that it is torn, and that you are losing boost. My DV tore with simply the APR trial software, so it's highly likely that your DV is causing this problem.

I hope this isn't a regular thing with the APR tune...

I just got mine a week ago and I was hoping to spend my money on a down pipe at waterfest rather than a new DV... Hmm... ???

i have the forge kit sitting on my floor......... not sure if it is the damaged dv valve as my powerband seems fine untill the high rpms........or could it be that the boost pressure is higer at higher rpms and is causing the leak..... bad spring in the dv valve?

I called Forge- they said that if you had purchased an HKS product in the last 24 months, that you were moved down on the mailing list :p

I ordered mine within 2hrs of getting the e-mail from Mike @ Forge ;D. Mine goes on this Friday- I'll take pics for ya. ;)

first you need to fix the pcv issue and make sure your not loosing boost. after third gear our cars kind of die out after 4500-5,300 rpm's. so possibly thats what your feeling.
