Or you could call iag and tell them what's happening, 5 bucks says because you said it was never tuned with all that done to it your timing is off intake is going nuts trying to keep the car running because your afrs are f'd and driving it just makes the problem 10xs worse. Don't be Afraid to call shops all they can say is idk, call iag bring it to them and post back up when you find the problem.

You bought a fully modded car without any decent knowledge of its condition/tune?

Ok but what were trying to get you to understand is that, how do I say this. It's not a civic. You can't just slap parts on and go smash it. No, you buy a part you put it in, you tune it. No if ands or buts unless its a Cobb intake or spt. You will blow your motor. Just trying to help you.

On the 02-03, yeah, yeah you can. Would it be optimal with a tune? Absolutely. It's 04+ you really have to tune for.

OP, take it to a reputable shop if its over your head. What does AWD have to do with this anyway?

Well my subie is awd... So I'm new to awd but in a sense it doesn't have anything to do with it. And I'm just going to swap the motor and then ill take it to the shop that's kinda close to me and have them tune it. But by that time I should be on a rotated setup anyway

I guess you can't tell if a vacuum leak is causing the misfire, but make sure all the vacuum lines are on and secured tight. It only takes a small amount of air taken in after the Maf to throw off the A/F ratio. Also don't forget about electrical connections

Never got around to checking for misfire but I'm not sure what's going on pulled both 2&4 coilpacks and the car ran the same as its been running so I think 2&4 r not working properly and the motor has 300,000 miles on it. I think it's just time for a new motor

Replacing a motor to diagnose a misfire? I wish I had figured that out while I was still working in the auto repair biz. I would've hit bonus every month!
