What map are you running, and what is the target boost you want to see? The perrin map see's 16lbs, which is nearing the limit of the stock turbo :-\

im running the cobb stage 1 right now im sure if i forked out the money for the stage 1 perrin i'd run higher boost but my exhaust will be in next week and ill throw a dp on as well and run cobb stage 2 i just want to try something for the next week or so to get my boost up higher. When i first installed the ap i was hitting 13.2 now it seems to be staggering out at like 12.3 i dont know why the difference

if you dont have any way to control the boost and monitor boost spikes, you really cant do anything to run more boost.
i think weight reduction would be more effective than trying to get more boost out off the stock turbo.

if you had something like this... http://www.rallitek.com/avoboac.html
i think you would be seeing more boost, but would probably want a protune to take advantage of it.

when i was stage1, i tried an electric boost controller and methanol injection. i ran it and felt a little difference, the boost was a few psi higher than stock at redline. Not really worth doing, but somebody had to do it... lol.

I hear that ICS put down 290 tq on a stock WRX with an aggressive tune. An LGT turbo with meth isn't a bad option either if you are looking for a little more power.
