Post Ok, my car keeps dying on me...what's up?

This morning when I started my car, it took an unusually long amount of time for the engine to turn. When it finally did, I let it idle for a while and after about a minute of just stitting there, it died. So I go to start it again and it starts up fine. I let it idle again and it dies. Haven't been able to start it since. Anyone know what's up? I have a MY00 with nothing but a K&N and a Stromung.

Yeah I did. But I put the parts on a LONG time ago and it has been running fine since. I don't think it's related to my bolt-on's though. I think it might be my fuel pump but there's no way I can check fuel pressure. Either that or my ignition coil is shot.

Samething happened to me with my95 impreza. It could be a couple things. Turned out that both my air-filter and fuel filter were clogged. I switched them both and it works fine. Another thing that it could be is that you just forgot to fill-up your tank =0) Ii doubt that though.

OK I'm thinking it was the fuel filter. It was pretty mucked up when I changed it and the car started after the change. I've got 22K miles and I remember someone saying that the fuel filter is good for ~15K miles. So, you guys better keep an eye on that filter!
