    Question help!

    I have an 02 wrx with an hks exhaust. Aem cai, hks bov,turbo timer,and a mbc. When it was working right it would make 17 psi of boost and drop to maybe 14 after about 5500 rpms which I considered fairly normal. But about a week ago it started dropping all the way down to 10 at an early 4500rpms and it would spool up very slow so I replaced the fuel filter and it spooled up fine again for a few days and now it just got a lot worse. It will only make 11 psi Max and the needle on my boost gauge gets real shaky and drops to 5 psi.a wrx with no power is NO fun. I personally think my Turbo is out but I'm no mechanic. I've also heard the injectors can cause similar problems

    Do you have any kind of engine management? If not, you're doing it horribly wrong, and I feel sorry for your car.

    I do not have engine management. The thing is I bought the car with thus setup and at the time it had 68k miles and now its got 109k and it always worked perfectly fine. Even ran a 13.5 1/4 mile and it just started this in the last 400 miles
