Quote:
A code P0175 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

The MAF (Mass Air Flow) Sensor is dirty or faulty. Note: The use of "oiled" air filters can cause the MAF to become dirty if the filter is over-oiled
There could be a vacuum leak.
There could be a fuel pressure or delivery problem
Possible solutions include:

Quote:
Inspect all vacuum and PCV hoses, replace if necessary
Clean the MAF sensor. Consult your service manual for it's location if you need help. I find it's best to take it off and spray it with electronics cleaner or brake cleaner. Make sure you are careful not to damage the MAF sensor, and make sure it's dry before reinstalling
Inspect fuel lines for cracks, leaks, or pinches
Check the fuel pressure at the fuel rail
Check the fuel injectors, they may be dirty. Use fuel injector cleaner or get them professionally cleaned/replaced.
Check for an exhaust leak before the first oxygen sensor (this is unlikely to cause the problem, but it is possible)

Mine did something similar and I got a P0174 and it happened when I installed my 90 mm... It went away after my tuner adjusted the tune.... Have you done any work on the Rig lately? Also our rigs don't have a MAF sensor......

If you are only getting the misfire code then I usually start with the following checks:
-check spark plugs for damage and gap
-check coil packs ( make sure they are grounding correctly through the plug and not arcing )
-clean O2 sensors
-Clean cam position sensor

Those would be the "easy" fix's - if you still get the code I would look into
-cleaning injectors
-fuel supply ( pressure and cleanlyness )
-exhaust valve ( stuck open ? )




I dont have much experience on these engines but I have done 3 engine swaps/rebuilds on my STi .. needless to say, misfires are a crap shoot to track down.

Do you have an A/F Guage ?

Sounds like you are running lean on cold start up...

For what its worth, p0300 means its a random misfire.. if it was cyl. specific it would end with a 1-6
