HELP? wot cel everytime
Hello Subie Community... I need help from you experts!
2002 WRX Chassis
2004 or 2005 WRX Engine
2005 Front End
IN PROCESS: 4" Carbon Fiber Wide Body
2005 STi Wing
Fully Black Flocked Interior
Cusco Drop Springs & Large Sway Bars

Engine "Performance" Upgrades:

At "wide open throttle" I will get a misfire check engine light, everytime since I bought this car off a guy back in 03. My solution has been not to ever go WOT.
The car has had a bit of a rough life, I bought the car salvaed after it was brutally vandalized (all cosmetic), so I tracked the car for a while (just dealing with the blinking CEL), the body has been wrecked a couple times (rubbing is racing)... the engine has been replaced... I swapped out the transmission gearset with the "STi JDM" set with a longer 1st and shorter 2nd-5th after shattering my oem 2nd and 3rd.
Well, now its time to turn this thing into a showcar/street car (aka: try not to distroy it again).
I don't know why I never delt with the WOT CEL before... but I guess now its time.
Any suggestions, advice, questions, commentary... it's all appreciated!

You need to find a good local Subaru mechanic and take the car there to get checked out.
Try Cobb's SoCal facility.

I agree, get a Subaru specialist to take a look.
