    Question I need help

    I bought an 04 wrx about a year and a half ago , since then i've had to repalce the "egt" sensor twice . The car was used and had some mods done to it . From what i can tell it has an hks catback without cats , front mount intercooler , wrapped headers , an xs engineering turbo booster , my gauge says it's doing 1 bar of boost . I took it to the dealer and they said the car is running rich and it's coming up as a misfiring code when put on the diagnostics machine . Another person told me that because i have no cats the exhuast is too hot and burning up my "egt". Any help solving this problem would be appreciated . Thanks

    First of all id get rid of the xs engineering thing you have going on and throw a cobb AP on it. If you threw a new downpipe and uppipe on there and got a protune, I think you would be running fairly well

    yeah, boost controllers are murder for the newer WRX's, get rid of that thing and get some proper engine management (or just return it to stock)
