02 WRX - pop goes the power

OK,
Driving down the highway at with cruise on going up a hill and all of a sudden I hear a POP... and then the slow down begins...

NO Acceleration in gear. I can put it in nutral and RPM goes up
Put it bak in gear and press the gas.. feels like i'm being pulled to a stop.

I was able to get it bak home safe of the road. Seems to idol and slowly I could get to about 50 but under very little press of the gas. Sometimes it would jerk back in forth like it was stravin for gas.

Every thing on this car is stock down to the stero.

Any ideas before I take it to the dealer??

Follow up

So I get home and open the hood and everything looks perfect.
Cranks right up and down the road I go... Car runs great.
Go 6 miles to Shell and fill up on 93. No issues.
So lets run down the Interstate a bit and see.
10 Mile futher no problem, runs up to 90 when I punch it.

wow Maybe I was dreaming this morning when it quite.

So I turn around to head home about 15 miles away...

Thats right 1/2 way back it happens....

I can run with just a tiny tap on the gas any thing more and its like I'm being pulled down.

So insted of nickle and diming myself to death. tomorrow morning its going to the Subaru dealer.
