First, when I installed my BOV, the car would sometimes stall out at high rpms between shifts, sometimes for no reason whatsoever. Its a recirculating HKS Super-Sequential. At the same time I also installed my 3" exhaust, and started shooting fireballs (no fire with the catless midpipe and stock exhaust). Car would also sometimes stall under hard acceleration, braking, or turning.
Now, after a while, my CEL came on and the car seemed to calm down, though sometimes I'd still get the stall between high rpm shifts OR I'd get a thing where, for example, 3rd-4th I'd shift and then it wouldn't let me rev past 7000 rpm.
Recently I had to bring my car in for the fuel tank and steering recalls, they reset my ECU I'm guessing cuz the CEL is off. Driving home, the car kept stalling ALL the time. That went away, sort of, but when I got on a straight and tried to punch it to see what would happen, the car built boost VERY fast, had tons of power to about 4000 rpm and then just died like the ECU was saying, ok fun time over.
Mods are in my signature - anybody have any of these problems or any ideas what's causing them? My techs think it might be the BOV sticking open.

Do you know what code you're throwing to get that CEL?
You've been 'R' flashed, so that is bad news with the eManage.
I was having stalling problems & a CEL. The CEL was caused by a bad front O2 sensor. It was bad because the morons at ProStreet, pox be upon them, cut my O2 sensor line then spliced it back together wrong. They also totally buggered up the vacuum hose connections.
After I replaced my front O2 sensor and fixed the vacuum hose routing, the stalling problem went away. Since I did both at the same time, I don't know which (or both) fixed the stalling problem.
I also have the SSQV, and ProStreet & GREddy both tried to blame it on that. They were wrong.
you cant get rid of the rflash. it does lots of stuff, the main one is keeping the gas tank from melting.
i think your issue is you need the new greedy map for the r flash.
how do I get a new GReddy map?
also . . . I melted a coil pack installing the e-manage ignition harness (we removed it) - the car kinda feels like it did right before the pack melted - could I still have damaged coil packs which would have been causing the stalling both before and after the flash, or could the r flash be melting my packs now?
You can clean off the fouled ones with a wire brush. I did that a while ago and noticed a significant improvement in power for a while, then it went back. Hopefully once I get the Interceptor dialed in that'll fix it.
ok but how do the fouled plugs relate to the car stalling every second?
and its not a little loss in power - its like, when the car hits full boost, the computer cuts ALL timing as if its trying to save the engine from catastrophic detonation.
