    Yikes. Terrible. I'd still urge the OP and all others affected to contact SOA and express their displeasure. I feel the owners have been wronged, and if the emissions are affected, everyone has been wronged -- this from a company that advertises about love and outdoorsmen and puppies.

    Do you mind if I edit the title so the thread is more "searchable" for the future?

    One last quick question. Earlier in the post you mentioned that there was an "unsafe" condition re: code P1410. How would exhaust fumes get in the car?
    If I continue to drive without repairing (since I can't spare the time or the $ right now), is there anything else to be concerned about?

    Oh yeah, and agree with the edit on the title for "searching" purposes. Go for it.

    With the valve(s) stuck open exhaust can get out into the hood area. They are supposed to let air into the exhaust when the pump is running - when they are stuck open there is nothing to keep exhaust from coming back out. At first it would just go back up the rubber hose to the airpump, but I've seen pictures where the rubber hoses have melted from the exhaust heat from the valves being open - at that point there is basically a sizable opening from your exhaust into the hood area. From there it can get in the cabin more or less easily. It could also mess up how your car runs if it skews the MAF reading.

    Sorry, but you need to handle this short term or park it. CO poisoning is serious and permanent damage can occur potentially.

    Some notes -

    Some '06 WRX have the baro sensor in the driver's side valve and some do not. After '06 they do, and you have to keep it (keep the valve plugged in or remover the sensor from the valve and keep that plugged in. Otherwise your boost will be totally screwed, not a little, totally (it defaults to 23psi atmospheric or something crazy). I forget if STi uses it. If there are five wires going to it, it has it.

    STi IIRC was the exemption, and it doesn't have the stupid passenger side valve that is so hard to deal with.
