    Hello all, been a WRX owner for about a year new, little more really... '02 wagon, and ya'll might not know it but you've already helped me solve a runability issue with my car thanks to a IRL friend that has the same car as I. He's the one that all but forced me to make an account here

    Jeez...not like I hit you with the wrench on purpose! How's you car running now that you have boost...instead of a gaping hole in the timc hose? O...and not sombodys &#$*ed up vacuum lines with no restirctor pill? I still don't know what they were thinking unless your car had a hybrid boost system removed before they sold the car. Glad that mess is fixored!

    Welcome to the club bro! Let's see some pix before someone whips out the ban.....
    when my friends come up, i hear, "you sold the camarrrroooh.....HOLY BLEEP A WRX!"
    Ya has that effect on me too.

    good, still seem like the boost controller isn't liking what it's seeing, cause if i'm at 3/4 throttle the boost fluctuate quite alot between waste gate presser and full boost. I'm guessing the aftermarket Dorman restricter isn't quite the right size, just haven't gotten to billings to get the proper one.

    Maybe. More likely....we (both) need to visit a tuner. Yours more so cause I'm damm sure someone modded amd maybe tuned, maybe not. But then removed stuff to sell. And left us a mess to straighten out. Lol

    Welcome to the forums. Some people think that removing the restrictor pill increases boost, but it usually causes more issues. A good tune helps tremendously.

    Rob's garage should get rid of that guy who doesn't have his own subie and hire kTwn to complete the daily meet situation.
