    backfire w/ lack of boost under excel, incredibly rougher than normal idle

    Ok so I have An 04 WRX with a lot of mods bought her a week ago. The only mods I know of are lightweight flywheel, 6 puck clutch, blouch 16/18 g turbo, 660cc Injectors, 3 in up and dp. she's pushing about 268 awhp. When under acceleration my car bobs and shakes and backfires while accelerating while losing power. And for some odd reason it'll just go away by itself or if I let it alone for a while and restart it its better for a little while. No fuel spitting out the exhaust or black or blue smoke. Oils are good. I'd really REALLY love some help. I'm new to Subaru and turbos honestly. Teach me something. I'm starving for knowledge.

    Take it back and make them fix it or refund your money.

    What kind of warranty did you get from the place you bought the car from?

    I'm assuming you bought the car as-is with all of these modifications on it? Did you have it inspected by a mechanic before buying? Do you know when the car was tuned, and whether it was tuned for the current mods that are on it?
