    Running very rich car has no power

    Im from pittsburgh pa and own a 2003 wrx that is moderatly modified im running about 280 to the wheels.... well was then the car was involved in an accident now its not running right. the car seemed fine when it went to the body shop now it is running very rich and has no power. All the local dealers say that the modifications are over there heads and they dont know where to start. Any help on a shop where they can fix whatever is wrong would be greatly appreciated. thanks

    Check your boost control solonoid. Sounds similar to a problem that I had...

    How do you know it's running rich?

    Where was the car hit?

    Where was the car hit? If it was hit in the right front, they may have re-installed the MAF sensor backwards.
