2001 bugeye impreza gx newbee

Hi to everyone,
Got my first scoobie and proud to be an owner
Been treating her to some toys and she doesnt like what ive bought her
HKS mushroom airfilter
oil catch can
was running for 3 weeks no probs
then on went the unequal borla and the vortex exhaust cat back
now every half hour i get engine management light ! !
no problems running but somethings not happy
ive got a memoscan 308 and 408 it knows there is a dtc fault but cant tell the error just says n/a 01/01 but both readers will reset the light.
I obviously need a different type of code reader has anyone got any suggestions ive heard about a vag readers but will they work on my model ?
cheers mike

Re: 2001 bugeye impreza gx newbee

hmmm, the mods added are basically chucking up the codes..have you tried the ECU reset using the plugs under the dash??...pointless plugging in a reader yourself...may be an idea to head to main stealer and get a full ECU reset done there or take it to a tuning shop of some sort..

HI, Thankyou for the welcome, I thought it was only the classics that have the plugs under the dash ? I was under the impression i needed a laptop and software to access the ecu to reset,get codes and see live data.
