I think that its a constint problem with wrx when you have an short ram installed. The check engine light always comes on. Did you find out what the problem was. If you go to auto zone they can tell you. let me know,becuase mine is always misfire on cylinder 1.

The best fix I have found for your issue is, if youa have a lap top/notebook.

is buy a tactrix cable- I live where I have to drive 4 hrs to the nearest tuning facility.

After you get the cable, download egniuity, and openecu.

go to autozone, or purchase a code scanner pull your code, then disable it through enginuity.
You could also start tinkering with your air/fuel trim but do it very gradually a little leaner than stock wont hurt you, as the stock settings are very rich..

I hope this helps some..

Running lean is VERY dangerous. You'd rather run rich before you run lean. You have to get that fixed RIGHT AWAY. Don't put that off. Take off the Manual Boost Controller and put the stock bov back on (leave it on). Get a greddy spec b boost controller (which is what I recommend) if you need one and bring it to your tuner and have them tune it for you right away. The short RAM is not a big deal, just make sure you MAF is secure on it and it doesn't budge and clean it if you must as stated before.

You dont need any kind of boost control on these cars. Its best to let the ECU control that. You can set your boost up with EM and a protune. Thats the best and safest for you and the car both. Look into changing the stock BCS out for a 3-port one.
