    A long introduction/problems with misfiring at idle

    Hello everyone I am new here im coming from s2000's so its a little bit of a learning curve. Well to start out I just picked up an 06 wrx with a few mods on it and it is giving me a fit. I am getting P0301-4 codes and it missfires pretty good. I already changed plugs even though they looked fine. I did a compression test and numbers were from 150-60 across the board. I ran an injector flush through with the pump disconnected and even swapped coils to see if it was that. Also I disconnected each injector one at a time and felt each cylinder drop. Although the idle runs higher when in closed loop it still has a miss and once it switches over to open loop the idle dips so low that it shuts off everytime. I'm really stumped as to what it could be. I was thinking it might be the cps but i took it out and its reading some resistance. Does anyone know how many ohms it should read? Well I know this is a doozy of a post but any help is greatly appreciated.

    get your hands on a stock bov and a stock intake or a cobb intake. Does it have a tune? Because subies NEED a tune with a catless exhaust. Those are the only things I can think of. But i dont know if a BOV and an intake can make it run so bad. I would make sure it has a stage 2 tune. Thats what it needs
