Well, the WRX just passed 10,000 miles a few hundred miles ago, and now it’s time for my first check engine light. Was just driving along at about 25 in third when it popped on. Lovely. Happened to be a quarter mile from the dealership so stopped by to see if they could check it out; they can do so Wednesday. Also lovely. Bitches.
In any event, it seems to be running okay, except I’ve noticed that I get what seems like some nasty post-lift boost creep (as I’ve no means of reading boost, this is all just guesswork), popping the needle up 1000-2000 revs after I’m off throttle and the clutch is disengaged.
