Loss of power

Was driving my impreza on the m-way tonight and when excelerating at high speed there was a loss of power just for a split second but enough to push me forward then it kicks in again fine. This happened a few times and any ideas would be a great help.
Many thanks in advance.

Re: Loss of power

it's not the cold air hitting the IK then,try an ecu reset and see what happens,some scoobs do this when there is a change in the weather,normally cold air hitting the tubby creates a boost spike and the ecu instantly retards it..

Re: Loss of power

at a guess i'd say heat sheilds,not sure what headers your running,if its O/E one the sheild are prone to rattle like biatch,if it's not the possible the sheilds in the tunnel..
