    boost but no power!! please help

    Hey I have a 02 wrx only mod is a 3" TBE. About a week ago i noticed that my car will spike really hard and hit almost 19 psi of boost and the car feels like it wants to go somewhere but its not picking up. My boost gauge will shoot to almost 20 and the car gets loud like its getting boost but im just not going anywhere any suggestions on what this could be and what i should check?? It does this in all gears.
