    04 WRX Stage 2 wagon help

    Recently went stage 2, Cobb AP tune after bolt-ons, I ran the AP dyno and was at 295 hp. I ran my car in 4th gear until the engine shut off and all the lights came on at about 125mph (what happened?). As of recent, I've ran the AP dyno again a few times and I am targeting around 240 hp. What happened to the lost hp and how can I get em back? Thanks for your time.

    The AP dyno is not very accurate. Did you use the AP to see what check engine lights you got? What mods do you have

    The AP dyno is useless. Go find a dyno day at a local shop somewhere and get a cheap dyno run to see where you're at...But only after you fix your engine problem.

    First thing you need to do. Give us more info than, "the engine shut off and all the lights came on."

    Second, If you have a CEL, do what she said^ and read them with the AP. Then refer to the owner's manual for how to solve them. Then report back to us.

    Third, is your car running? What are your mods?

    I'd say check your fuses. Couldn't hurt, even though you say the engine is running now.

    Did you read any excessive knock?

    Maybe you overboosted and hit cutoff.

    Bought some bad gas.

    I'm hoping I hit cutoff. I sniffed around the turbo while the car was on and couldn't smell much.
