Kangaroo car

Morning, quick question. For the last week or so and finally got really bad today my car has been bucking as I've been accelerating like you see learners doing. I'm not sure if this will be injectors or ignition, it idles rough going from 2k to 800 and repeats. As soon as it finally climbs over 3k it hits full boost and runs fine then struggles as soon as you come off the pedal. Any ideas?

Re: Kangaroo car

About 2 weeks ago, with 2 new coil packs. But it was running really well until 2 days ago and this morning cruising to work with the hazards on.

Re: Kangaroo car

Is CEL on? What year/model Impreza, any mods and what plugs did you fit?
Where they gapped correctly?

Re: Kangaroo car

Cel lights been on since I did an engine swap. It's a 93 wrx. Strangely I bought some injector cleaner that you throw in your tank and it seems to have fixed it for now so I assume it must be injector related. And I'm really not a fan of buying additives!
