hey, so i have 2002 wrx with the following mods;
FGK cat back
hks downpipe
k&n short ram
ngk spark plugs
cobb short shift

up until now the car has been blazing fast i mean ive torn skylines new holes along with 350z. But recently the amazing torque i felt before has be noticeably reduced, someone told me it could be because of winter tires. i dont no about that reason. another one of my friends said its prolly my turbo due to high km's on the car. So i see that as more of a possibility. if anyone can help me i would be so grateful my baby is hurtin :sadwave:

its not your winter tires. check for boost leaks. do you have a boost gauge?

they did feel heavier but i dont think they were heavy enough to make that much of difference. hahah yes their are skylines in canada but we only have RHD and due to import laws they have to be 15 years old, so we only have r32s. my car didnt come with a boost gauge so i dont no, but i just drove it and the rpms where the torque should really kick in is just not happening so im going to assume it is the turbo. is their any other possible explanation for this to happen, so that i dont just go off and buy a vf34, vf39, or vf43?
