Default Engine light on after hitting 80mph in 4th

Hey folks, my 03 wrx has a little problem. I have not had a chance to look into yet, maybe one of you can enlighten me and find out what the issue is. Just as the title states, I was going up a rather steep incline and just reached 80 mph after coming off an on-ramp to get on the interstate. The car then lurched/felt like the brake was pressed in for a split second and the check engine light came on. This is the second time this has happened, shame on me for not finding out what the issue was the first time but after a few days the check engine light went out! Working 5-10s makes it impossible to get to the auto store and get the code so I (kind of) hope it stays on until saturday. Possible computer issue? Thanks!

Could be almost anything.
Easy would be....
Low gas and you lost fuel pressure from accel and cornering
Low oil pressure

Without the code, just the code, not the description although you can add that, we are all clueless.

P0244 was the code: turbo charger wastegate solenoid A range/performance. I think you are on to something Charlie-III, I was on a quarter tank going on an incline then punched the accelerator. Filled the tank up after work with the service light still on and after filling up it was gone. That had to be the problem.

several restarts without the code will make it cycle out 3 if I recall

I'm not sure what it is but I can tell you I once bought a used 04 WRX with a factory tune that had a perrin inlet stock TD04 and the wastegate restrictor pill removed

It would go like hell but when I let off passing a semi the first time it surged and caused a light same code same description I have often wondered what caused it

Sorry I cat offer a solution as I have since pulled that motor the car was just a good replacement shell

Interesting, thanks for the info. Glad it isn't a mechanical problem or something of that sort.... I hope! Haha
