    That could be very possible that it is your clutch, im changing out all my spark plugs because i also have a rough idle. Im going to regap them at the smallest subaru recomends and see if that does the trick for me. If not im doing the clutch aswell.

    Stock wastegate could be going out... RPMs dont slip... you floor it boost goes full then drops 5-8 psi, shoots right back up and goes down 5-8, just hitting full, dropping, back and forth back and forth? Yes?

    Sounds like your having a problem with the boost solenoid. Its not able to respond quick enough, essentially you overboost, then the solenoid kicks in and begins to open the waste gate, but opens it too far and fast, so it closes and begins to build boost up again and then overshoots, and continues to modulate. See this a lot in cars that go to stage 2 (remove the catted up pipe and either remove the exhaust cats or replace with a hi-flow cat) without a tune. In extreme situations, you overboost so far that you hit feul cut, and trust me, you'll know if that happens! Either the previous owner removed and reinstalled the vaccum lines incorrectly, or the boost solenoid is not working correct, or a combination of the two. Or your exhaust has been modified like above. Really does sound like "boost hunting" to me...

    Well, your friends proably aren't right in the feul cut, but close to the problem. When fuel cut occurs on a WRX, it'll feel like you straight hit a wall, its that jarring. Plus, your Check Engine Light will come on, and your Cruise control light will flash. That, my friend, is fuel cut. Do that more then a few times, you won't have to worry about diagnosis, you'll have a lawn ornimate!

    Yeah pretty much

    well i don't have a psi boost gauge i have the other type that is confusing to read;

    but yeah its kinda like I'm bouncing of a red line i guess and i see both my boost gauge and my rpm bounce a bit

    and depending on if its doing this in first or second it hits hard

    first = hard

    second = soft
