Default Squealing while boosting

RE: 2012 WRX Hatch

This is my first Subaru and I can tell you I love it but it has been giving me grief.
First, I had a throw out bearing go bad which subsequently resulted in getting an entire new clutch kit under warranty. Still the car grinds going into 5th gear on the highway AND now after 4 days of not driving it, it squeals while boosting under moderate throttle input.
The car has 7k on the meter and it's killing me to have these many problems.

check the throttle body to intercooler hose. its notorious for coming loose. remove the endcaps on the hose if thats your problem. do a search about this. its a common problem on the 08-13 wrx.

Okay, I will check that hose...and yes I have COBB intake, Invidia Q300 CBE with a stage 2 tune. The dealer ship seems to be fine with it. They haven't said a word to me and have already done warranty work.

I dont think you should have a stage 2 tune unless you have a downpipe. Just sayin.

Yeh if you don't have a downpipe go back to stage one. Remove you inter cooler and take the throttle body end caps off I almost guarantee this is the problem. It's really really easy to do and might take 20 minutes.
