2006 wrx, 60,000 miles, perrin drop in air fliter cat back with restrictor removed, cobb stage 1
checked code, the cleared.
any ideas why i would blow a wastegate code?
You just "over-boosted"; I believe that is the correct term. This has happened to me three times now. It is very common with stage 2, when accelerating hard in 4th and 5th gear. I don't know if it is as common with stage 1, maybe someone else can elaborate. However, you should be fine just clearing the code, and not worrying about it. Is it very cold where you live, cause that could cause this as well? You might need a new waste gate solenoid, but from my experience it is nothing to worry about.
