    Exclamation 2002 wrx misfire on cly 1&2 above 4500 rpm

    2002 wrx 2.0 turbo misfiring on cly 1&2 above 4500 rpms. already changed intake tube by the turbo spark plugs timing belt and MAF unable to find any boost leaks.
    compression is good spark is good and timing is good. fuel pressure is fine. if you unplug the MAF to make it run super rich it runs fine. any ideas?

    MAF put back in facing the wrong way? It has been known to happen. Frequently.

    You checked the valve clearances? Leakdown test? I said what I said because 99% of the people that claim they "did everything" ended up doing just about half of the list. Checking the valve clearances is a PITA with the motor in car on a Subaru and even harder to change the shims. Hence why most people skip that along with moving injectors.
