lurching under load

Hi guys i'm new here, however this is my 3rd impreza.

Driving it home when i tried to hoof it when it was boosting up it was pulling a treat however at the same time it seemed to have a misfire/lurching type affair going on which seemed it was trying to stop it from boosting.

if anyone could tell me how to fix it i'd most grateful. its a impreza turbo 97' uk car.

many thanks andy

Re: lurching under load

assuming it's cold up where you are you could well be experiencing boost cut or over boost,basically the air is too cold n dense...if your running an IK remove it and return to the oem air box

I must admit it was baltic last night. Excuse my ignorance, what's an IK? It dosen't have an air box but an hks filter. Do I need to get an airbox?

Cheers andy

IK is induction kit ...scoobs arn't overly keen on freezing conditions when running IK's...get hold of a airbox with high flow filter and you should be good to go....

give these chaps a shout for the airbox :- Grade A
