It looks to me like it has to either be fuel or computer related.
I have not modified anything, other than some striping and decklid panel... nothing that makes the car do anything but look different.
Also, intermittently, the service advancetrac message and lights would come on, about once a month for the past 4-5 months. Other than that, the car has run excellent.
