Weird Problems

Hey my Name is Will. I drive a 2007 WRX. I have a problem and cant figure out how to fix it.

I will be in 3rd gear about 35 mph and give it about half throttle and about 5 lbs of boost will build and my car will rev up real loud like i am hauling ass but i will still be going 35 mph. It seems like the motor is producing power but not allowing the power to go through the tranny and to the wheels.

I replaced the boost solenoid because i was told that could be the problem but it didn't fix anything. I almost want to stop driving it but that is the only way i can get to work.

This sounds like your clutch is slipping

My default thought was clutch but you might also look for a boost leak. They can be rather loud and if your not building any boost and the RPMs are still rising at a normal rate then you might be blowing boost from one of the couplers around the inter-cooler.

I agree clutch kit needs replacement you can either go for aftermarket parts or OEM.
