    Ok so, we have an update. I finally went to bite the bullet and took the car to the Subaru dealership. $85 and 20 minutes later they told me the valve for the turbo needs to be replaced, and that should solve my problem.

    Does this sound like a reasonable fix? I'd like to hear the opinions from you guys before I go spending $300 to get it fixed.

    What "valve"? There is the wastegate actuator and the boost control solenoid. My guess is the car just needs to be tuned for the exhaust. A free flowing exhaust will allow the turbo to hit the boost cut.

    Ok so I got the wastegate actuator replaced. Didn't do ****. Now they are telling me the turbo is bad. I don't believe it myself.

    Where would I take the car to get it tuned to allow the exhaust? Like I said I'm new to the car, is this something that someplace in my state can even do? How expensive is it?

    I'm from Maine, and I'm a college student, any advice is appreciated.
