Help! 05 legacy gt ltd issues
 
Just purchases my first subaru. Love the car, however having an issue with it... Starts fine the first time of the day, and if it sits and cools before I start it again, still fine. But if the engine is warm and I start it after it only sits for 5-10min it shutters, the rpms are <500 and not throws a misfire code. Any suggestions? Already changed plugs and boots.

Anyone??

You might check your fuel pressure. Does the car have any mods? A little more info might help.

Only mod is an AEM CAI

How long has the intake been on? Well before this issue started?

Sounds like a vacuum leak.

Cold Air Intake?

More like heat-soaked air intake, the way they're typically installed. If that's the only mod, and you still have the factory snorkel, it may be helpful to revert that.

Yep, put the stock intake back on. It's good until like 400whp.

The intake was on it when I bought the car. I don't have the OEM one but I will find one either on eBay or maybe at a local salvage yard. Thank you all. Will let you know how it goes.

Would a k&n typhoon or spt intake be better, or doesn't cobb make one too? Just a thought, they are easier to find than the OEM one.

Yes there are plenty of aftermarket intakes, but they will all have the same problem - you'll run lean without a tune.
You may be able to find a stock intake at a salvage yard.

Found one for 100$ locally. Woot woot!
