Threw my first code yesterday...
Hi guys, first off I have an 08 WRX sedan with invidia high flow downpipe, and dual n1 exhaust with cobb short ram w/ air box, accompanied by a Cobb accessport with the 91 stage 2 tune.
Well.. I was coming on the high way, had fourth gear sitting at about 4 grand (about to blow the doors off of a new civic si who thought he had ball sack), and then I punched it i heard a noise and my engine light came on and the traction control light, and cruise control was flashing.
Upon reading the code, it was p0244 which is "waste gate solenoid A" minor overboost. Seems like this is a common issue especially in high rev's in upper gears.
I come from boosted VW's and I had a similar problem with my car when I chipped it. It turned out to be the diverter valve couldn't hold the boost that high. So my question is, would upgrading my diverter valve to a nice hybrid (50/50 valve) help things? Or is this just going to keep happening!
