Resident Clubdub Debbie Downer. I'd love your ideas if you kept them to yourself. Subarus suck, get a new wife.
Just sounds like his car has no grunt before 3,000 RPM? I would say this is normal though if that be the case. I have 1500RPM...nothing 2000RPM....nothing 3000RPM.....meh 3200RPM ZOMGWTFBBQ....

I'm going to close this thread up. While I had very diminished power, I"m going to attribute it to the age of the car and excessive heat we are having.
Compression didn't seems to be an issue; there is no oil or coolant in the exhaust.
