    Question 03 WRX LIMP MODE NO BOOST PLEASE HELP

    Me and some buddies were on the way up to the mountains when my car had a boost spike and then had complete power loss, i got back into town and went to autozone and pulled codes p0244 for the wastegate and p0188 for the tgv low input, i have absolutely no power, turbo still spools but no boost??? car is stock besides a catback exhaust, all the boost lines from compressor housing to BCS and wastegate are brand new, no leaks, y pipe on the intercooler is fine no leaks there.. PLEASE HELP....

    How new are all the boost lines? Are they all hooked up correctly? How long have you had the car?

    Hmm, are you sure there are no other mods on your car?

    Did you keep the restrictor pill?

    I'm not sure about the tgv. I know mine over boosted once when I had a full turbo back exhaust with no tune...but a proper tune fixed that.

    I think without a restrictor pill it makes it harder for the car to build boost...but I am not positive since it was building boost before this happened right? You should still have that pill in there though...

    Well you should have that but I don't think that explains why it over boosted and I have no clue what the tgv code is for. Umm...can you post pictures of engine bay so we can see everything thats going on...maybe some unknown mods.
