well im bucking pretty good going into third and i just had my spark plugs done. any other suggestions? I might have to go to subaru cause the import shop is too far to go with the way the car is running. now how does subaru deal with cobb tunes? will they work on my car with the tune? Im pulling my hair out at this point. im hoping my local mechanic was right when he told me i had the wrong plugs. and that he put ion the right plugs. plus when i got the bpv installed he also installed my heatyshield wrong, i think i need another mechanic. also0 should i put it back to stock before i go to the dealership? (i hate putting my car into test mode, its a pita!)

What if you put it completely back to stock. Then if the problem goes away then you k ow it's something with aftermarket parts. What's your parts list anyway not in profile.

i know a wastegate adjustement was done, would this cause a bucking prob? thats when it really got bad, not sure tho but it was the first time i really noticed it. (i let my pops drive it and he complained about bucking as well b4 this.)

it was just subtle stuff at first. just simple stuttering up hills at first. I had it looked at and i acrtually had a tune up done b4 i went to stage 1. anyway i had it looked at again and thats when i really got the problems. i think my mech effed up the wastegate. like i said it was just a simple prob up hills and my pops said there was a bucking and i didnt believe him, then i got the bucking and now im sol.

Seems like your mechanic ####ed something up. Maybe that trip to the performance shop isn't a bad idea after all. Even if it is a little far. Will pay off in the long run to have people that actually. Know what there looking at and can diag it right the first time

Turn your wastegate arm back a turn. Does the car smell like rotten eggs?
