    Your Problem

    Hello well Im not sure if you have installed a manual boost controller or not but I had a very similar problem. It was set for to much boost and the engine would cut out. Then the check engine light would come on. Thats Subarus way of protecting the motor shuting it down before any damage is done. I just adjusted the controller and it never happened again.
    Hope that helps
