    It means he suspects there is a manual boost controller fitted. Is there a boost gauge in the car? If so what is max boost?

    my fiance did just put a boost gauge in there, just to see why my car was lagging. my boost goes up to about 9lbs.

    That is low. See if there is a Subaru specialist in your area.

    what would be wrong with it? would the coolant leaking from the coolant tank cap be affecting the turbo and boost gauge?? but i know of one right up the road.

    Well for one it could be the potential lack of a boost controller

    It means if you're only seeing 9lbs of boost, you're on the upper end of wastegate pressure, meaning you don't have any boost control in your car, if in fact you are missing the OEM system.

    You could make a list of things for the shop to investigate: the potential coolant seep, the low boost and whether the factory boost control works.
