Hey guys I bought a T5-R a couple of weeks ago. I just recently drove it for a longer distance when the CEL came on. Using the jumper to A2, I pulled code 231 which is too lean / rich at part load. I drive the car, get back home, let it sit overnight. usually the light is out when i start it in the morning. Only comes back on after 1 hour of driving. Ive also noticed 2-3 times that after I start the car the car starts the stall, and if I dont give it gas the car dies. If i accelerate to 2-3k, the engine stays on and doesnt proceed to try and die. Any suggestions? Im also getting really crappy fuel economy, roughly ~15-16 mpg. :confused:

Plugs, wires, cap, rotor. But first pull the PCV nipple out of the turbo inlet air line and make sure it is clear.

Ignition system is fairly new. Trying to find info on replacing the vaccum hoses

A common Vac hose failure is the one that is on the left of the intake manifold. There is a small elbow and that tends to deteriorate. It is right under the PS pump.
