    check engine lights? misfire codes run like p0300 to p0304. recent problem or getting worse? maybe check on the condition of your intake and intercooler hoses for bad/misaligned connections. if somebody else is servicing your car it could be just as simple as tightening a hose clamp. i just had this problem but i know what caused mine, and a heck of a lot of others(bad gas). O. are you running 91 octane or better? thats not just a recommendation. these little motors must have higher octane than regular cars.
    when my friends come up, i hear, "you sold the camarrrroooh.....HOLY BLEEP A WRX!"
    Ya has that effect on me too.

    Sounds like the car is begging for a tune. I hope it has been tuned with that mod list.

    Tune it immediately. You don't seem to understand the basics of tuning.
