i have an 02' wrx that is having trouble making power. The car idles fine and drives decent with out boost. When i try getting on it the car bucks at about 2.9k and builds about 8psi to around 4.6k. then any thing after 4.7k rpm's the car doesn't want to accelerate, the rpm's don't climb any higher and it won't build any more boost. It makes a weird sound that is hard to describe, its not healthy sounding to say the least... When the car is in nuetral it revs up to redline no problem and sounds normal. I have no CEL. I have tripled checked all my connections. I replaced all the plugs (old ones looked fine), i replaced the fuel filter, the fuel pump, injectors, restrictor pill (drilled out to #55). Any suggestions of where else to look would be great!
Mods- Big 16g turbo, silicone turbo inlet pipe, STi pink injectors, walbro fuel pump, AEM CAI, 4" catless down pipe, 3" catless TBE, TurboXS-RFL BOV, PDX e-tune w/cobb AP v2.
When a clutch is getting ready to crap out, does it make strange sounds? Could my clutch be slipping?
