    Misfiring questions

    I have a 2013 wrx with 4k miles,, I notice that when Im at or above 3k rpms and get on it more it will missfire and throw the check engine light, traction control light, and cruise light... my question is is the missfire coming from too much boost or is there something else I should be concerned of.. would running ac while getting on it cause that issue as well? This issue has happened 3times now.

    Take it to the dealer under warranty. Ask for a loaner car while they fix it.

    Did you run any logs after your buddy's tune? Not every car will react the same way you know...

    This. I believe the combination of those 3 lights means your car is going into limp mode. Did your buddy do any MAF scaling for the intake? How accomplished of a tuner is your "buddy"

    I'd never touch another person's car until I could do anything at all to my own, in my sleep, no matter how much I'm sure I'll want to prove I can tune, once I learn.
