    Just bought a 200 civic dx, with a fully built motor and a wrx turbo. Ill give you more info on request if you need it to help me with my problem.......
    The car runs perfect and the boost works wonders when it hits boost. Only thing is when in low rpms the car bogs a little bit but as the rpms climb, the car will start to stop bogging. But if I hit boost it doesn't bog at all... any ideas what causes the bogging in low rpms??

    do you have a wideband installed? if you do @ idle what does the gauge read?

    when i say wideband, I mean a wideband o2 w/gauge. not the AFR gauge that has lights on it that goes bazzerk.

    i would say find a tuner in your area and get it in there as soon as possible. if its in fact that tune, its not really something you can fix without knowledge of tuning a car.

    I'm not a genius but could it be the turbo is rather big for the setup and you just have some serious turbo lag?

    Wrx turbos are actually pretty small.
