My car:
2006 WRX wagon.
Does not burn oil.
Cobb AP Stage 2 Map ACN 91 OCT map
lnvidia Catted Dp
3" Exhaust to Aero turbine muffler
Cobb SF intake w/box
5 point grounding kit from paranoid fabrication
Walbro fuel pump installed
New spark plugs
oil changed 2 days ago and every 3200 miles
All aspects of 60k mile tune up done except fuel filter
Injector cleaner used from time to time
NO CEL's !
Compression and Leak down test Showed 130 all the way around on a cold engine w/3% leak down.
Coil packs look good

When I get on in 3rd at high RPM's around 5k the car suddenly sputters a bit almost feeling like what Valet mode does if you've ever tried that. This does not happen all the time and has only happened 3-4 times.
I'm told by an Etuner the car is misfiring at low RPM's and not making power like it should. But l cant diagnose much without Codes.
Valve Clearance was checked and they are good.

Car smells a bit of gas from the exhaust is my last thing to say.. Injectors maybe or fuel filter are all I can think of. But again no codes here and I'm going off the few sudden lurches l've had and what this tuner said. Any experience here is appreciated.
