evo x going into limp mode (HELP ME)

well whenever I get up against the launch control, after about 3-4 seconds the car will go into limp mode every time. I am not to sure what the heck the problem is and the dealership can not seem to figure the problem out either. I had a Boost leak and fixed that, well it cured the problem for about 2 days or so then it was back to going into limp mode again. Any help would be much appreciated guys and please no smart ass remarks like should not have bought jap crap or whatever.

How to recognize Limp in Mode

It allows you to drive the vehicle but it limits power. In other words, it allows you to "limp in" to the repair shop. Here's one way to recognize that your in that mode.
