Stock intake + Driving Hard = No Problems.
Ghetto ass home made cold air intake + Driving Hard = Problems.

Gonna go out on a limb and say that your home made CAI was the issue.

I didnt ask for a response about being a ghetto intake. I know how to build a intake. Its all intake parts. I work in a performance shop we sell the parts to build. I could not find one to purchase for a non turbo legacy.
But anyways if anyone got a honest response without judging what people does I would like a honest input.

Thanks

Honestly, you should just take off your intake, replace with the stock one, and see if the problem continues. Seems to be a pretty easy solution to me.

I can't see how the two are related.

I don't see the relation either but if that's all that has been changed, then that should be the starting point.

That was kind of my point. Regardless of how ghetto or not it was, if it was the only thing that changed... start cutting out the variables. Change it back to stock and see if it makes it better.

How long ago did you flush your transmission fluid?
Did you check the fluid after the light started flashing?

The TCU stores codes like OBD 1 ECUS do. Go from there.
