Reset ECU, car not working

Postby Bradz » Sun May 08, 2016 6:55 pm

Hey guys first post here, I have a 2009 Subaru WRX Hatch. Mods include turbo back, Greddy BOV to atmosphere and K and N filter. All mods were done by previous owner, so I highly doubt the car has been tuned. Anyway lately I have been having some trouble with the car stalling in to corner, I tried resetting the ECU by disconnecting the Neg terminal for 45mins and reconnecting. Well after reconnecting and taking for a test drive I have lost all power. The turbo will not kick in anymore it's as though it boost spikes and just shudders. I can not push the car past 3000 revs. Any ideas? The car was running okay before now it's stalling in neutral.

You need to log n LV your car with a Tactrix after checking all your boost and vacuum connections.

Chuck that panel filter and get a standard dry paper ryco. Delete the vent to atmo. Clean your now stuffed, or near stuffed afm.
