Hi I have a subaru 2.0r sport 2005, ive had it just over a month now and love it!.but recently it seems when I put my foot down, it hits about 3 and half thousand revs in 2nd and 3rd gear and goes sluggish? Like the revs go up but the speed holds back like a little jult and then it picks up speed all of a sudden??? Any clues out there????

Umm... possibly not the best place to post that in my thread. But anyway, is yours a twin turbo? It could be the notorious valley of death which is the point when the second turbo is spooling up to take over from the first.

Im sure if you search you will find the answer.

Could be a few thing's but I'm with matt I'd look at when the plugs was last changed that might be due. I'd also get some carb cleaner and give the throttle body a spray while giving it some revs. amazing how that can soon clear the cars sinuses.

Well Skifledanabit said one of them about the spark plugs if they haven't been changed which a lot of people do neglect because of how hard it is. And the throttle body give that a clean out with some Carb spray to clear the sinuses :D
