I Recently bought a 02 Wrx has lots of mods,When i get on the freeway WOT 4th gear or so my car cuts out then throws a wastgate code.
I have a 16g, cobb intake, pink sti 565 injectors,3 and a halve catless exhaust,headers,uppipe,downpipe,Short ram intake,huge TMIC,HKS BOV,cobb stage three tune,amoung some other stuff im forgetting right now. What do I do?I know the management system is cutting it out to prevent damage...But How do I fix it?I would like to fix it myself if possible..

My advice: get a professional tune. Those OTS maps are crap.

cobb stage three tune


What is a Cobb stage three tune? As far as I know Cobb only has OTS maps for stage one, two, and vf39.. and I'm fairly certain they have no maps made for cars with aftermarket headers.



You're going to need a real tune with those mods.

AccessPORT Off The Shelf Maps

Stage 3 is on the list. But I agree, he needs a custom tune.

Ahh.. looks like they've updated their OTS map list (honestly, I don't pay much attention to Cobb stuff these days).


Is the 16g you're running the Forced Performance 16g they refer to in the map notes? There are a lot of vastly different 16gs out there. According to their map notes that map will not work with aftermarket headers (or intake, but they usually say their intake is okay).

I still wouldn't ever run an aftermarket turbo with an OTS map.. too many variables to just make a blanket map for all cars.

Im not shure the brand 16g,it has a blue tag on top says, dsm tdo5 16g thats it.
Kinda how I bought the car,I knew it wasnt 100% when I bought it but it was cheap...I stole it for 5 grand.

Still get the tune. The tuner may/may not want to use the MBC. Post in the CO thread and someone can hook you up - I think they use a guy Harvey someone but not sure the firm. Or PM "sinister".

That will be a sweet setup.
