09 WRX Power Surge
Hello, I have a stock 09 WRX and ever since new (about 6 months) has a couple things that may be related, that I noticed that don't seem normal to me
1) Below 3500 rpm the car does not pull that hard and then at 3500 rpm it is like a SOB. I understand that the turbo is not making any real boost a low engine speeds but is it normal to have it come on all at once at 3500 rpm? It is almost hard to drive with this sudden surge of power right at 3500 rpm....
2) Occansionly, during hard acceleration, the power drops out / or is reduced momentary (about 1 second). I dont know why this occours but feels like the boost dropped suddenly (just my guess). This happens well below redline (3000-5500 rpm). Anyone else have this happen? I did read of some similar problems on this site, but all seemed to be related to aftermarket parts or incorrect tuning.
Thanks for any help on this topic
