Get a base map from your tuner and flash it.

Also change your oil as you could very well have some fuel mixed into your oil pan right now. Gasoline is not as great of a lubricant as oil, comparatively speaking of course.

I did a turbo swap and some other mods (don't trust shops) and had a custom map from a well known tuner (etune) loaded before I started it for the first time. It idled great!

Of course, this is the kind of paranoia you get when you're on your 2nd sti

You need to get a tune ASAP (rocky).

All of the upgrades you previously mentioned REQUIRE a tune to function properly, and give you the power you SHOULD be getting.
