very low idle stalled a few times

today on my way to work i went through a puddle followed by a stop light at the stop light the rpms just died started back up, died again, started it up it felt sluggish. but picked up speed. than it just completely cleared as if it never had the problem. so should i worry about this low idle, assuming it dose not happen again. also i have about 148500 miles so you guys think something is wearing out on it? any ideas as to what is going on. its an 2004 sti stage 2 at 17.5psi stock bpv, with tbe.

Stock intake?

Could be a slight possibility that you got some water on your MAF. Get some MAF cleaner and hit it up.

Was this a pretty massive puddle? Did it slow you down alot that you weren't in the proper gear? That's probably what caused you to stall.

rollin on 17's now and they're dirty

How much gas was in the car at the time? Sounds like fuel pump. You get that with a dieing pump when the tank is low.

yup stock intake, and also i was running low on gas
the puddle could be candidate for this issue but it wasn't that big and it stalled after the puddle after the stop light
