    Unhappy Need Help with Power Loss!!

    Hey Club WRX.. I have a bugeye 02 wrx w/150,000 miles, with a 98 JDM STi Tranny, and today I had some problems with my boost. When I went to get onto the freeway, as usual, I accelerated with confidence; however, when my boost reached 5psi I felt a loss of power until the boost hit 6spi then full power returned.
    I know that I am in need of plugs, basic tune-up, and timing belt. Also last week during one of the hotter days in SoCal, the check engine light came on, but before I had a chance to check, the light went off. I was wondering if this problem could be because of any of the maintanence that I need, or could my turbo, exhaust, or Transmission be taking a poop?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. I don't want this to get any worse than it is. Thanks Derick

    Well its hard to say w/o the cel code... It could be your in need of a tune up or something else... Your timing belt should've been changed at 100K miles and your already halfway through what should've been the second one... What mods are you running?

    No mods, just the 98 Sti Jdm Tranny.. Could any of those be a reason for loss of power between 5 and 6psi in all gears?
