Noticed a few times while on the highway that while in 4th gear and somewhere between 4-5k my engine cuts out for about half a second then cuts back on and the check engine light comes on. I have no idea what's going on. I disconnected the battery and it reset and didn't come on again until the same thing happened.
This is happening on an '05 WRX Wagon that's been modded a decent amount. I don't know if it has to do with a tune or what. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Provide the code.

Why are you resetting the ECU without pulling the code?
That's like peeing blood then popping pills without going to the doctor.
Likely, it's the overboost code, based on your description, but without the P####, we can't help you.

I'll pull it when I get off work today, was just trying to get any general ideas in the mean time.
Thanks for the responses.
