    MAF junk? Please help!

    I have a 02 WRX and been having major lean issues with it. When I drive it, its only like i got 1/4 throttle. After 3500 rpms and starts boosting it jumps really lean. It will also start detonating on higher rpms. I have changed the fuel pump, fuel filter, O2 sensor, and plugs. I also put the stock airbox and BOV back on to see if that would help. No help.

    Well i logged what i could with my scanner(i know it isn't much). Here are the stats:

    TPS% - 100
    Eng Speed - 5009
    Calc load - 67.9
    Maf flow - 124.85 g/s
    MAP kpa - 162
    Iat deg. - 73
    IGN advance - 9.0

    This was the highest of my run due to traffic..

    Can anyone say for certain that is the problem.. I am pretty certain that is the problem. Would just like to know for sure

    Have you cleaned the MAF sensor?

    Any leaks?

    Visual inspection isn't sufficient. Have you tested for leaks?

    No.. Not actually. I just read about the propane testing. If that would be sufficient, I will try it tomorrow. Gonna give anything a shot.

    Well, after further investigation.. i noticed that my turbo inlet hose has about a 1 inch tear in it. So i guess i am going to try a Perrin intake tube. I will install it and reset the ecu and see what happens. I will post back shortly
