Default My car keeps dying

I just got home and as I pulled into my neighborhood my car dies. This happened last night, too. I was pulling into Shoney's and the car dies. I thought I just stalled out, but it just happened again. I have a CEL light, but I've had it for 5K miles and I haven't gotten that fixed yet because I have body damage on my car and I don't want Subaru to think I had an accident. The CEL code is P11111 and that's something about the intake pressure. My only engine mod is a Cobb intake. I've been hearing a funny noise coming from my engine when I start the car and at idle, but I was pretty sure that was just my Cobb intake vibrating against the fender. Both times this has happened I wasn't touching the gas pedal, and if I was it was only a little bit (can't remember). When the car dies I know the radio stays on and so do the dash lights, but I think the headlights go out (I can't remember, but I'm pretty sure). Anyone know what's going on?

I have no idea...

5k with a CEL on was kinda asking for trouble unless you knew all the time why it was on (ie headers).

who installed the cobb?? - maybe something was accidently knocked off during istall.

-ck the bog clamp that hold the intake to the throttle body.
-ck all vaccum hoses.

If all else fail, return the car to stock and take it in to your dealer.

I did the install, I just checked all the hoses and they're fastened just fine. The intake is securely fastened onto the throttle body, but the tip of the intake wasn't in the fender well, it was resting on the inside of the engine bay. One of the hoses has a flat spot in it (think of when you wind up a garden hose too tight). It's the hose on the passenger side. It's letting a tiny bit of air go through. I really doubt that's the problem. I probably am going to put the stock intake back on and take it to a dealer. Hopefully it doesn't die on the interstate.
