Yup, this is *exactly* what mine does too. Mine has done this with my first tune, and I thought it was tune related, but I was just retuned yesterday at another tuner, and the car does the same thing.

I will be reaching back out to the new tuner tomorrow to see if he has any thoughts on clearing it up. I'm on MAF, for what it's worth.

My friends 18 doesnt even have a built motor yet and still to this day we haven't gotten an answer. For now he is living with it as two of the best tuners in our area aka wkd matt and brentuning haven't figured it out. The guys at bren essentially would have to take everything out check then reinstall as the didn't do the physical work and already fixed a couple major issues before retuning.

Have you guys watched the signal from the front 02 at all when this happens? Once it warms up and goes to change cycles it seems to stumble until finding itself again. Happens too fast to get a good log and understanding of why.

Was that massive mod list worth it considering the pitfalls?

For me itís worth it because I truly enjoy Subaruís and this platform. It may not be the most cost effective way to get the power compared to other platforms, but itís there. Honestly other than this small inconvenient issue, Iíve has no issues on this setup for the last 15k.

Barometric pressure sensor. When I did my big build, it was accidentally taken out. Not until I purchased a new one and installed it did this problem go away. No need to retune for it either.

Something so easily overlooked, theoretically it makes perfect sense. I just pulled that bad boy off my shelf (drivers side, big connector as compared to the passenger side because itís where the sensor is). Took me 10 minutes just to find where the harness was tucked away under the manifold lol but Iíve hooked it up and waiting till morning for a full cold start. If this works, Iíll let you guys know and will be cutting the Sensor out of the housing.

My car has been tuned to just turn the rear 02 sensor off and it hasnít had this problem.

I don't believe this is the cause of the issue.


I thought this at first too, especially since I also removed the air pump at the same time. Either that or that it was related to the TGVs, except those have been being deleted for years without consequence now.

My Baro sensor is still connected, and presumably working. I cut mine off of the cap like I saw some people do, and just left the sensor tucked away in the engine bay. When I log the car, I can see the barometric pressure reading change day to day, location to location, so, I'm assuming it's still working correctly.


I'm unsure if my rear O2 is enabled or not. I'm running a cat, and the sensor is there and connected, so I'm assuming the tuner left it on.



Edit: Just double checked mine, and it seems to be working. Is reading 14.23 today, and it showed 14.07 2 days ago in a data log. 14.23 seems to be a bit low compared to the airport's reading of the pressure, but I'm also slightly up on a mountain, so....?

Iíve just tested with the Baro on, no difference since the MAP pressures adjustments were pretty damn close already at sea level. Leaving it on to eliminate that possible issue.

I have my rear 02 enabled but only because I have my Wideband tapped into the rear 02 harness to log on the access port. Everything is pre cat and functional / calibrated.

Just to clarify you had this issue prior to shutting off the rear 02 sensor. Then when disabled the rear 02, the problem went away? Are you running a Wideband to gauge only with no physical connection to the ECU?

It sounds like you've got the ability to adjust your tune yourself there at home. I'd be curious to know if you temporarily disabled your rear O2, if the issue goes away tomorrow morning for you or if it still remains.

I have no way of editing my map unfortunately, and still haven't heard anything back from my tuner yet about this.

So nothing changed?

Have you reset your ECU?

Sad that didnít fix.

Nothing changed with the idle issue, and yea reset the ECU. This is frustrating. Rear 02 shouldnít have an effect on the cold start but worth a shot since Iím out of ideas.

Exactly the same issue here. 2018 STI all the bolt-ons + e85, except turbo. Has died on me once... tuner (brentuning), states that it could possibly be from the e80 fuel, recommended me to put e60 to see if it solves. Nothing yet. Its just a minor inconvenience.

I think we can rule fuel out due to the variety on this thread from Pump 93 through E85. Thereís no way we could all be experiencing the exact same issue with the variety of different builds. It has to be ECU or tune related. It seems to be ONLY 2018 Stiís with this problem 🤔 But then again the variety of top tuners weíre using would have caught this. This doesnít make any sense! Perhaps something changed or is not programmable in the 18 model STIís vs all other model years ECUís?

Very possible. I wouldn't be surprised if its ECU related. I'll email my tuner tomorrow with this information.

I'm on a 2017 and am affected by this running 93. It's definitely not only 2018's, or related to E85.


I've had 2 people tell me it's related to the air pump delete now, but still no word on a fix. It just seems odd to me, as people have been removing those for quite some time now. It would make sense that it would be related I suppose, after about 20 seconds the air pump would kick off, and the car would probably cut the amount of fuel it's injecting to compensate for that. Still, you'd think there would be compensation tables for this, and other years would have seen this issue happening before now.

The thing is I don't have an air pump delete, not sure if a possible leak could be an issue but ill get around looking at it.

Any news on this?

STIAH64 - Did you ever get a chance to disable your rear o2 and see if this resolves the issue?


I can't even get the shop who did my tune to call or email me back. I sent them in a log per their request about the issue, and almost 3 weeks later, I can't get them to pick up the phone or right back.

Rear 02 has no bearing on this issue. I think itís TGV delete related. The fuel trims go crazy right when the TGV would start itís work. Itís for a specific duration and every cold start, so it would make sense that somewhere the ECU is thinking itís still there and trying to correct, then over correct and we would have our stumble. The question is why? Every other EJ this can be accounted for, why would it be an issue on ours? This is the question that makes me doubt the TGV and at the same time thinking it is.

You share the same thoughts as I. Just trying to have someone actually test it who is able to eliminate it being a possibility instead of just throwing more blind guesses at what it may or may not be without actually testing anything.

I too feel it's related to TGVs, but again, just like you're thinking, these have been being removed for years now. Why is the issue just now creeping up? More so, I can log my car and see that the TGV setting remains unchanged on start up - meaning, it should be disabled in my tune, so is there something else that's changed or causing the car to think it's still there? I don't know..... Grasping for straws at this point.
