      Hey All,

      I have had a check engine light for quite some time, and now finally have the opportunity to do something about them. I have $1,600 at my disposal if need be, but I'm not sure what I actually need to replace to fix these issues. I got my car scanned at AutoZone today and they are as follows:

      16684 - P0300 - Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected
      17521 - P1113 - Bank1-Sensor1 Internal Resistance too High
      17947 - P1539 - Clutch Vacuum Vent Valve Switch Incorrect signal

      While driving, the only issue I have is that boost builds and then when I hit around 3,200 rpm I seem to lose all boost and power. I can't floor it past 3 grand or it won't accelerate at all because it hesitates so bad.

      So far, I'm planning to buy:
      New MAF
      New Spark plugs
      New air filter
      New APR R1 DVs
      Samco TBB
      Samco F-Hose

      Any input is greatly appreciated

      take it to a dealer and have it diagnosed correctly, will save you money in the end instead of throwing the old "tune up" bag of parts at it. just my honest opinion...
