    Check Engine Light... Help!

    Just picked up an 04 wrx. Got a check engine light today and brought it to advance auto they ran the code and said it was running too lean. The mods are as follows...
    Turbosmart BOV
    K&N drop in
    ProDrive muffler
    The other mods don't effect the powertrain.
    Any help on what i should do would be great.

    i am wondering if the BOV is causing the code. I know they arent good for a stock WRX, but cant remember if they cause lean or rich.

    Just an update..
    I popped the hood and was looking around when I noticed that the hose comming out of the T-valve, that was running to the boost gauge, was torn and all but disconnected. I installed a new hose then disonnected the battery to reset the CEL and it seems the problem is solved. Good thing because I just got the car last night and was a little pissed.

    if you can get stock wrx bov and sell that aftermarket one you'd be good. Plus have some cash for a downpipe!

    on newer cars, unplugging the battery won't reset the light.

    no but resetting will eliminate light and if you fixed problem it will not comeback. If you don't reset it and you solved the problem, you'll need to drive a little while before CEL dissapears on its own.
