    2002 WRX (Air leak issue?)

    New to posting here, but hoping someone can point me in the right direction.

    About 2 weeks ago I was going about 90, and my blowoff engaged.. Since, anytime i get to 4500+ rpm's i hear what seems to be a large air leak, and the engine bogs. The more gas I give it, the more it bogs.

    No vac leaks, no exhaust leaks.. I've replaced the BOV.. Still having the problem. Any ideas?

    The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong in the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry. Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms, 1929
