    HELP high rpm and losing power

    I have a '05 WRX with 38k. Having issues with the RPMs in 3rd & 4th. If you are at 2.5rpm and accelerate hard, the rpm rev really high but the car does not go. It feels like you lose power (but nothing happens) then the car kicks in hard.

    I have reset the battery and added high octane booster.

    Any thoughts!!
