    I probably would have bought a boost gauge before anything. You might have been suprised to find out nothing was wrong.

    Yes WRXs have a nice amount of power...but its not exactly a huge kick in the pants amount of power...especially depending on how you drive. You can barely hear the turbo do anything on my STI with a G200 CBE.

    Yeah on my STI you can't really hear the turbo at all. On my '04 you could hear it a little with the stock exhaust, then with a Cobb DP you could really hear it. My kids called it my "airplane car" because of the whine like a jet engine you'd hear.

    My intercooler hose had a slice in it and thats where it was leaking, no idea how it could have gotten there maybe somebody slipped and cut into it. Thanx for all the info, least I learned a little too.
