Default Help car running horrible

To give the back story. Thursday night (2 days ago) I flash stage one in my wrx mainly just to learn the flash process because I am about to go stage two. Anyways, So today (saturday) I was driving home from school. I was almost to my house when at a redlight the car started rocking almost like a muscle car it is bogging down like it is going to stall etc. I look down and the check engine light starts to flash(never had done this before). I limp home (one block away) and read that this means I am misfiring in a cyclider.

I think well I will just go back to my saved stock map. I flash the old map. Start it up and it is still running crappy. I can hear it knocking and it seems like it is struggling. So I then reset the ecu but disconnecting the neg terminal and pressing the brake petal. Waited 10 minutes reflashed to stock again no luck. It is weird I would think that if it was a map problem it would have arisen early put on at least 200 since flash. I did a log which I can email to someone if they can look at it.
