    loss of power any suggestions?

    hey eveyone, im new to the forum, and i have a situation. like an idiot before reading up on it i decided to put a blow off valve on my 2002 WRX. and of course a couple of days later i last a huge amount of power. so today i took the aftermaket BOV off and put the stock one back on for good. ive bee driving around for a couple hours now and i still feel an EXtreme loss of power, its almost feels like my turbo is nonexistent. will it take couple of days for the power to come back or is there something else i need to do. thanks for any comments

    Check for leaks, and consider re-setting the ECU and maybe using Shiv's method (search here) for quick learning.

    Here's the link to the Shiv quick learn trick. It tells you how to reset the ECU in the first step.
