WRX new intercooler,now engine will not run
I had an intercooler fitted to the front and I think the people did not know what they were doing, I think the vacuum or air pipes have been fitted in wrong position, after cleaning spark plugs engine runs very bad poor fuel is being pumped in alot of blck smoke and will only rev to 2000 rpm and runs a tank of fuel in 60 kilometers., once stopped will not start and plugs have to be replaced.

So you didn't have it tuned after the installation? If not you should NOT START the car again until you get it to a shop.

Drain the oil and replace the oil and filter.

Replace the spark plugs.

Have the tuner load a base map and tune from there.

Do you have a CEL?

Dennis49, what is the status of your ride now? Did you get this corrected? What did you do to correct it?
