    having some trouble!

    Okay i have a 2002 wrx. its an automatic (i know lame) and i have about 117,000miles on it. i have added some aftermarket parts but im have a problem with the throttle. today when driving at about 70 to 75 i floored it and it started acting like it was getting power and then not. like a wavy acceleration. its hard to explain....kind of like i was geting power, no power, power, no power, power, no power. it has done this before to just wondering what you guys might think it is. i have not got a tune yet and i think that might fix it but wana know what you think. this is what i have added on my car performance wise. new 3" turbo back exhaust, un-equal length headers, up pipe, perrin lightend crank pulley, aem short ram intake.

    also from a stop if i floor it some times when it shifts into 2nd the car feels like it looses all power and almost dies and the at oil temp light starts to flash?

    please help

    No I don't even have a reflash. I was planning on having Matt do a tune. I'm hoping that is just my problem causing it
