CEL + Brakes = Limp home?

Okay, so heres the story..

Ive had an Injen CAI on my car for 4 months, no problems... My breaks are getting a little low, squeeking etc.. I drove my room mate to work saterday morning at 7AM, car ran fine.. I left to go to Los Angeles for a rave i was going to DJ at saterday night at 7PM, and I turn my car on, didnt get more than 100 yards down the st and it threw a CEL, and I cannot boost past .0.... Car runs fine,just no boost...ive reset the ECU several times by disconecting the battery. Even over night. I just want to know besides taking my car to subaru and having them flash the ECU is there any way to get my car out of limp home mode??

You need to have the code read so you know where to begin.

My car is well, it's like 10 lbs of shit in a 5 lb bag...

So where is the party on SATERDAY

Lol sorry

Limp mode, did you ever think about getting a aftermarket tuner? Cobb Access Port might want to look into it for future performance use.

Stacy has a K&N typhoon short ram for sale (I think he still has it) if you ever want to ditch the CAI. A tuner will definatley help out with power and CEL junk.

It is next to imposible to help diagnose a CEL without the code #.
