Default 2 problems. ecu not recognized by inspection machine, CEL won't go away

Okay, so first, i have a 2003 Subaru WRX with an opensource tune. my ecu info brings up that the tune file is from a 2002, not sure if this makes a difference.

1st Issue: For the past two years i've had several problems with connecting to my ecu, i've tried several different computers, different tactrix cables, all that. it rarely seems to work for me, but i've gotten it to work in a few instances, but i could never figure out how. a friend was trying to put the car through the inspection process but he couldn't get the nys inspection machine to recognize that it was connected to my ecu. any ideas?

2nd Issue: My charcoal canister mounts broke a few years ago causing the canister to hit the floor and drag, so i decided to remove it all and and delete the evap system codes through romraider, i did so, but the CEL would never go away. no matter how many times i went back to make sure that all the codes that were popping up were disabled, my CEL would always stay on.

any help is appreciated.
