    07 WRX studdering around 2k

    ok, well i have a stg 2 tune right now, ive NEVER had problems until like last week, i thought it was bad gas but ive gone through 2 tanks and no change. the problem arises after the cars been cruising for like 10-15 minutes around 2100 RPMs, it will be like "ba ba ba babbbbba bbab BRRRRRRROOOOOOOOOM" and being that its 2 degrees out the car pulls harder then it EVER has. but now that this is happening im scared to even drive it really...

    my buddy is POSITIVE its predetonation and told me to get one step colder plugs. but another one of my friends thinks that its either a boost/vac leak or a misfire, i havent thrown any codes except for an 02 sensor code and that i presume is because im catless.

    oh and jeff (drummm) and i checked my plugs during the summer and they looked perfect...

    Please help, thanks!

    Your car would have been more inclined to detonate in the summer than the winter.So I doubt it is a plug related detonation problem.Have you done anything to the car lately?Do you have any way of datalogging the car?Try listing all you mods.

    i actually forgot to mention the BOV its a VTA BOV and i was told by my buddy jared to remove it because unless i have a tune for a vta bov, then it can make the car bog out like that at low RPMs. and today when i reset the ECU by disconnecting the battery, it went away COMPLETELY, so i think im going to get a protune at speed industries here in detroit. If you think its not a tuning problem/bov problem, continue to post PLEASE! but for now, it runs great and well see!
