    Loss of power help!

    hey everyone, new to the subie world here but i got a strange problem already.

    when i first got the car (03, manual) it scared me it was so fast. it was a thrill to drive, but now i feel like im driving a civic. if im rolling in 2nd around 3500 and punch it i dont get shot back into the seat like i use to. it has no mods but clutch and fly.

    i just got my whole fuel system cleaned today, drove it about 10 miles and no improvement.

    the cel was going crazy after the first week i got it but i assumed it was from the BOV on it(turboxs) so i took it of and put on the stock one. the code was P304 so im not sure what could be causing the misfire other than plugs.

    You became used to your car. It happens to all of us. The car will never feel as fast as the day you bought it. As far as the code goes... I am not quite sure, but it may be MAFS. I am probley wrong though. Shoot Micah a PM he will know.

    strange, are u sure theres no utec or access port on it? im not sure how it works but if the previous owner didnt do something right u could have a serious problem, check with a tuner or someone to see if ur ECU has been reflashed recently.

    But what ever u do do NOT check with subaru, because if u do and it indeed has been reflashed, ur boned warranty wise if u have engine problems.
