Was driving on 95 the other day to find my 09 WRX hatch suddenly does not create any type of boost whatsoever. Car runs just like an NA, no boost to be found. No CEL, reset the ECU, checked the solenoid, removed heat shield to check wastegate arm all to no avail. Afraid turbo might have gone bad but according to the older owner he replaced it around 10k ago. Any ideas before I break my bank and invest in another turbo? Heard something about the MAF which I thought was unreal, have yet to mess with that. Figured I'd ask the pros first.

There is a C-clip (half moon) on the actuator arm that can (rarely) go AWOL. You said you checked the WG -- was the clip there?

ended up getting in contact with the prior owner and he said the turbo had a 30,000 mile warranty on it when he last replaced it. getting over to the subaru dealership tomorrow and hopefully walking out of there with a full wallet and a new turbo. will keep you guys updated.
