    02 WRX losing boost...Help please!

    Hey guys, I have an automatic 02 wrx and lately I can feel that i'm losing boost when I step on the gas at high rpms, I don't have a boost gauge to see how much psi is running. But like all of you I know my car very well and I can tell it's not the same... is there anything I should be looking at, any help will be appreciated.

    thanks guys

    boost leak.

    you most likely have a boost leak, nearly every wrx has at least a small one. my 2002 does the exact same thing(auto) it was really bad at one point so i replaced my Waste gate soleniod and it (nearly) fixed the problem how many km are on it? after 200,000 they just seem to just go... they need constant care.
