When I first bought my R I couldn't see more than 10psi, I assumed it was a bad TCV, replaced it, readapted it, and I consistently saw 13-15psi and the car pulled harder.

Well my car recently kept throwing an ABS/DSTC service code until I "ghetto" fixed it, and today I took it into the dealer for an alignment and software update to remove the 3000rpm hiccup. Well today I saw no more than 10psi of boost. Is it possible that limp mode or an ecu reset will cause the TCV to need to be readapted? I just did the adaptation procedure and I'm back up to 13-15psi

I'm thoroughly confused. Yet glad that my R has almost all of its problems sorted out :)

I would say, possibly. These god damn computers sometimes have a mind of their own.

Curious, what are you calling the adaptation procedure?

go from 0-20 in 1-2 gears, then floor it from 3rd until you hit 60, slow to 20mph and repeat the 3rd gear pull, do this until you hit full boost, took me 4-5 times to hit and stay at 14psi.
