I'm a WRX newbie since I just bought a used one a couple weeks back. I took it to the dealer to see if they could take a look at my low boost problem.
I was told that the ECU is reporting the car as an '05 instead of an '04 and that the ECU calibration code does not match my VIN . What is the deal here? I have a feeling the previous owner was playing around with Enginuity.
The car is 100% stock, but the dealer claims to be seeing 'aftermarket' bolts on the exhaust system. They also said the heat shield over the wastegate / turbo is missing.
I'm really hoping this doesn't screw me on my warranty. Any thoughts as to why the ECU would be reporting this weird data back?
