haha that WRX oh man...
If it's put together OK mechanically I'd still take it, just need to fix a number of cosmetic issues. That intake/hood setup blows my mind.

It's not put together right. As I said, it was and still may be stuck in 1-2nd gear. They have had it for months and it has been sitting b.c it is/was broken. It has pretty much all stock Subie parts except the motor and exhaust.

The car idles rough and bogs upon throttle input, unless I'm moving along... If I blip the throttle to downshift, it wants to bog/die/backfire

Underway, it seems ok at times, other times it seems like its hunting for power, like the ignition timing is going all over the place..

I'm set up with Learning View, RomRaider and ECUflash... have emailed screen captures and flashed ROMs myself and whatnot..

For the car running so bad, it gets great gas mileage.. ??

FINDING said possible leak is the issue (if there is one, I would just suspect with all that's been done, I'm pretty good at details though)

The car has run good in the past sure... Although I've been trying to work out a logging bug with the car that doesn't allow logging above 4krpm (I'm thinking electrical noise, It's yet to be tested this year)

I'm hoping it won't be long and I can pay someone to spend some time with it.. maybe set me straight on what's really going on... what's not working proper, what is, what needs to be changed...ect... I'm in a VACUUM up here..

Welcome.

Are you the girl that was having a bunch of issues with your wagon? Someone sent me a PM asking for local shops b.c someone was having problems and had already been to a bunch of places that didn't fix it.
