Default Let me be the first: 07 STI Limited CEL & Flashing cruise

hahaha.. had the car for less than 48 hrs.

SPT intake
Helix Catless downpipe + CEL fix
Tanabe Ultra medallion exhaust

it was 66 Degrees F outside and I was accelerating on the highway (but below 5K rpm as I'm still breaking it in) and I hit fuel cut and got the beloved CEL and Flashing cruise.

I'm starting to think I should've kept my catted downpipe from the partout of my 05 STI.

I havent reset my ECU yet, any suggestions besides that?

Future plans are Fujitsubo = length header (already purchased) and an Accessport when its available to run Cobb stage 2. Everything else will be Suspension mods.

Port the wastegate or put a cat on. I vote for the latter (although I've done both to mine ). A good tune could probably address it with strategic alterations to the WDC parameters.

I'm still wondering why you did a TBE w/o engine management and/or porting the wastegate when there are tons of threads that cover boost creep in the 06s (nothing substantial has changed in the 07 either) and even earlier STis.

I'd put it back to stock while you're still breaking it in (and follow the break-in procedure). After break-in then I'd put your TBE and get EM and/or port the wastegate.

Honestly, do your homework before you mess up the car more even more... boost creep on a car, especially one that hasn't even broken-in yet, is asking for trouble.

The SPT intake sucks ass!

Good job not doing any research on why short rams suck. (hot air intake, congrats on costing yourself power and making your car slower.)

Clearing the ECU has cleared the code... we'll see what happens when I drive it home from work tonight.

I'll buy an 07 AP as soon as I can get one.... not listed as available on cobb or Z1's site yet.

I got it w/ the heat shield too if its worth anything.
I have noticed some 'hesitation' at certian points that I didnt have with my 05. I might be trying to stock airbox again to see if it makes a difference.

Tomorow will be my next chance to work on the car.

I did so some searching here about the SPT intake.. I must've missed the thread(s) where it was declared to suck ass.

Wow modded before break in. How sad, such a waste of a perfectly new car. In order to hit boostcut, you had to be accelerating pretty hard. Whether or not you past 5k, the breakin states 4k. I cant wait for your post in a couple months which involve surround a compression test.

put your stock downpipe back on and stock intake...wait until after break-in and get a cobb ap then install your downpipe and flash to stage 2 end of story and i mean that in the nicest way oh by the way putting a downpipe on with a high flow cat does not cure boost creep in most situations i have one and had boost creep until i ported the wastegate but this does not work in every situation.search is your friend

thanks.. no i know most people here are being helpful.. it was that 'i cant wait until you need a compression test' remark that rubbed me the wrong way.

I had a helix single cat DP on my last STI for most of its life and I havent had to deal with creep once.

Each car is different /shrug

I would also suggest the accessport as a means to stop the boost creep problem but it is a very poor tool for reading trouble codes. For example, mine would read code P0302 as 31 and 153. IMO, they shouldn't include that feature since it doesn't work.
