newbie. Help and advice please!!!

Hi all. Ive just collected my new uk 1999 subaru impreza 2litre turbo. Ive driven it home 210 miles and its fun even though it was hammering it down. Anyway, my issues. The revs drop to near on stalling point now and again when pulling up at lights. Also when revving hard at 80ish mph. Ot 70 officer. lol. The car seems to hold back before exploding into boost. Read a bit about these cars and my head hurts. The car has a green hks induction kit and a bov that looks like a trumpet plus a full stainless exhaust. Any advice would be good. Plus i filled up with shell 99 fuel. Seen thats the best option. Sorry to type so much but ive been on the road for 8 hours. lol. Steve.

Hi Steve and welcome,
typical advice is remove the Cone filter and replace with airbox and the same with DV/BOV,
reset the ecu and see if this sorts your problem,
cleaning the IACV out or checking the rubber seal is clean may help too.

Thanks for the welcome. Does the standard airbox fit from all classic scoobys? Struggling to find a 1999 one. Cheers. Steve.

yes it will fit, I own a 99 classic and the air box is identical to that one.

Re: newbie. Help and advice please!!!

Ive recieved my standard airbox. Nipped down graham goodes to get a k and n panel filter and got on with swapping the hks cone. The joys of living so close to gg. lol. Cleaned the maf with some maf spray off ebay for good measure too. Ive reset the ecu and touch wood, everythings all good now. No dodgy tickover. Hopefully thats that. Dont know if it was a dirty maf, induction kit or just down to the ecu reset. It was run on 95 unleaded before i got it and i use shell v power so who knows. Get on with the other jobs now. lol. Got a squeak from the rear at low speeds which goes when i brake. Going to change the pads as they look like theres very little left on them. Enjoying owning my scooby very much though. Much more character than my mg zt. Plus so much quicker. lol.

Good show, glad its got you sorted,
Ive used GG for many service and after market parts, they were the cheapest for a lot of common service items like fuel filters.
