Default HELP? wot cel everytime

Hello Subie Community... I need help from you experts!

2002 WRX Chassis
2004 or 2005 WRX Engine

2005 Front End
IN PROCESS: 4" Carbon Fiber Wide Body
2005 STi Wing
Fully Black Flocked Interior

Cusco Drop Springs & Large Sway Bars
Brembo Brakes
Kirk Racing 6 Point Roll Cage

Engine "Performance" Upgrades:
Original 2002 VISHNU stage 0
** Catless UpPipe, Underdrive Pully, Vishnu Mapped Piggy Back **
CatBack HKS Hi Power Exhaust

At "wide open throttle" I will get a misfire check engine light, everytime since I bought this car off a guy back in 03. My solution has been not to ever go WOT.

The car has had a bit of a rough life, I bought the car salvaed after it was brutally vandalized (all cosmetic), so I tracked the car for a while (just dealing with the blinking CEL), the body has been wrecked a couple times (rubbing is racing)... the engine has been replaced... I swapped out the transmission gearset with the "STi JDM" set with a longer 1st and shorter 2nd-5th after shattering my oem 2nd and 3rd.

Well, now its time to turn this thing into a showcar/street car (aka: try not to distroy it again).

I don't know why I never delt with the WOT CEL before... but I guess now its time.

Any suggestions, advice, questions, commentary... it's all appreciated!

You need to find a good local Subaru mechanic and take the car there to get checked out.

Try Cobb's SoCal facility.

I agree, get a Subaru specialist to take a look.
