2002 Wrx

Default Cel p0304 and tons o fun

Ok so i sold my integra last week and bought a 2002 wrx, The previous owner Instald a Vf37 ihi turbo, sti injectors, walbro 255 fuel pump, 3 inch cat back, turbo xs boost controller, and turbo xs fuel manegment. set at 19psi The car ran perfect for the first few days i had it, untill i put a wide mouth invidia down pipe to full 3 inch exhaust out. It ran fast like that for a few hours then i opend it up on the freeway and it hit 20 psi and choked out. so i turn the boost down and it runs up to around 15 psi and sputters till red line in 3rd 4th and 5th gears. its bin doing this for the past few days ocasionaly throwing a misfire code on the 4th cylender after its sputtering/choking. then at the gas station today i notice a small amount of smoke from under the hood and there is coolant sprayed all over the front of the engine. i cant tell where its coming from or why it would mysteriously start leaking, does anyone have any ideas or comments?

a few things to note.

Im from alaska and we have 90oct. gas here and turbo xs base map is for 93oct, the previous owner said he has the timing turned back 3 degrees across the board.

Im 17 years old and im not that familar with turbo cars so lets keep the negitive comments to a minimum

There is no good tuner machanics up here

Also there is a loud screeching noise that sounds on a cold start up.

The loud screeching is one of your belts. It's normal.

My only suggestion would be to have your car tuned with the downpipe on as with any subaru, you should have it reflashed when installing a dp or up. In the meantime, put the stock downpipe back on and see if you are having the same issue.
