    I really hope the tuning fixes it.. cause i really don't think i need to get a new IACV... So this code is thrown due to lean mixture?
    Not necessarily lean....just "different". You would be more likely to get a lean mixture if you're pushing the turbo with higher boost levels w/o any additional fuel.

    Think about it this way, the motor is expecting to pull from your TMIC and a certain volume of air before more comes in through the intake. Well, in your case, the motor is pulling in air but the intake hasn't kicked in yet. At the same time, the turbo is calculating the for the smaller volume of air from the TMIC.

    As a result, the sensors don't go when they should, the calculations are screwy, and the ECU gives up & throws a CODE. In your case, the P1507 code is complaining about idle.

    What kind of turbo/injectors do you have?

    VF 30 and pinks

    I do hard reset (unplugging battery) and restart the car and the car runs fine when its cool outside. I just drove it now and its still ok. the cell will probably come out again later.

    Do you think i should run with economy map?

    02-03 WRX Cobb Maps If you read the map notes for Vf30, it specifies it was designed for pinks and TMIC. Or is this what you're already running?

    run the economy map just to be very conservative & "safe". but give the VF30 map a try. Maybe that will get you going for now until you have the funds & schedule to go north.

    Nope not bad. So does BofA know you're getting tuned or did you happen to get sick on Friday ?

    Before you go up, I would say double, triple check the hose clamps & tubing. I ended up having a whole in on of the tubes because the hose clamp tore it (cheap rubber vs silicone). As a result, the boost pressure was out of whack & I had to fix, reschedule, and tune another day. Mike was kind enough to make himself avail on a weekend because of the troubles.

    Nasioc is a good place. The ebay one's supposedly cause clearance issues w/ AC lines.

    However, Eric has a nice Hyperflow that will fit perfect

    $175 isn't bad....i don't know about that BOV. Since it's being capped off, there's no return for the intake (last time i tried that, i kept stalling & backfiring hahaha)

    If anything you can sell if it doesn't fit.
