    06 wrx, CEL and will not rev after converting back to stock.

    Ok,
    I converted my car back to stock from a vf39 conversion. I put everything back exactly as it should be, checked and re-checked connections, but I am getting a CEL and my car will not rev at all. If I put the gas to the floor it will slowly rev to about 2k and not go any further.

    The only thing I can think of is an electrical problem, but I only had to mess with the o2 sensor to convert back.

    Also the CEL will not go away with a battery reset, so I am assuming its electrical.

    It won't rev at all, so I cannot take it to autozone to get the CEL checked.

    Any suggestions?

    Really bad leak? Did you disconnect the Test cables?

    Yeah, I disconnected the test cables. I will quadruple check the connections and report back.

    Thanks

    checked all connections in the exhaust and turbo. Checked all of the intercooler connections, vacuum lines, and intake.

    Do you think I maybe cracked my intake tube? It almost does seem like a leak after the map sensor or something. I noticed the intake tube looked streched from the vf39.

    Could it be the o2 sensor in the DP? Like maybe it was damaged during install/re-install?
