Super bummed I spent all that money on a cam gear head, new ECU, and new oxygen sensor. But now the car runs like it used to and i have my boost back.


Funny you say you had a vacuum leak by the turbo because I just found out thatís most likely my issue as well. I was having roughly the same issues and the car would sometimes pull hard on boost and other times itíd feel sluggish and not want to spool and a rough idle. I threw a CEL and code P0172. The car went into limp mode and would almost stall out idling at a light. I decided to take it to Lafontaine as they were the closest to me. I thought the MAF was dirty and they then told me my Perrin intake W/O a tune was causing the issue. I had it on for 4 months before and no CEL but I noticed a couple months before the CEL was thrown that the car became iffy on pulls. It would either pull hard or be sluggish. I didnít think it was the intake because before I had installed it, these issues would happen sometimes but I didnít think much of it. After the CEL was thrown and Lafontaine told me their reasoning, I drove home to find the car felt great but then 2 days later, back to the normal on an off sluggish driving habits. I ended up contacting Perrin last night and told them everything and they told me that most likely the inlet hose is having vacuum leak. The Tech guy called me and I talked to him and he said this issue is very very common on WRXs and he showed me a video of a vacuum leak on a brand new Wrx which is suprising. Iím going to order Perrinís inlet hose and hopefully that is the solution to this issue.
