No, I didn't because I wanted to limit the number of variables that I was changing.^^Interesting. Did you reset the ECU after swapping to the stock TCV?
Interesting. Not beat a dead horse, Kelly, but when you swapped out the TCV this last time, did one of the hoses seem loose or anything? Just trying to rule out something that you could be "fixing" every time you swap the TCV. Seems like if one of those connection was failing though, it would be obvious when you did the swap.Well, mixed some 100 octane in, titrated it up to 94 octane, reset the ECU, re-loaded the stage 2 tune, and all is well, it was in the 70s this evening, and I did multiple full boost accelerations on the 17 mile drive home, never a boost limitation problem.
Will continue to drive it with the higher octane and Stage 2, see if it develops any problems. I have dyno time scheduled in two weeks, so hopefully it will stay running well so I can test BSR, RICA and stock all back to back.
As of right now, I can say RICA S2 appears to like stock TCV better (I second soup's observations above), and does not like some 91 octane CO gas...
None of the hoses seemed loose when I swapped back to stock 2 weeks ago. I didn't change the TCV yesterday, just added 100 octane, reset the ECU, and tuned S2. I'll run it for a few days, then maybe try the IPD TCV again. If the problem returns with IPD TCV, even while running 94 octane, then I'll know they are not compatible.Interesting.

As Pirate mentioned earlier, you really need someone with VIDA/DiCE to pull all the codes to see what has been logged. There could be any number of causes for the car to go into a self-protect mode. The codes will likely be cleared when you install a new tune and/or reset the ECU, so you'll want to pull them before doing that.Well, 6 psi limit problem returned last night with stock TCV, 94 octane and 50 degree temps while running Rica Stage 2. I drove 10 miles to store with it running strong, and about 5 miles on the way back, then all of a sudden after waiting at a stop light, only 6 psi.
I'll swap back to stock, confirm there is no problem, then load the BSR since I'm at 94 octane currently.
I just can't figure out why S2 tune keeps "learning" itself into limp mode. Its not gas or temperature. Altitude? Leak? But never a problem with stock tune...
