help please

hi guys im new here as i just bought myself a 2001 impreza wrx and 1 week later i have a problem thats just accured.

when im in the boost the car feels like its missing a few beats,not quite missfiring but loses power for a split second and then back on the boost and then the engine light started to flash and is now staying on.
the car is standard apart from a cat back system and dump valve.
now when i looked under the hood i heard rattling coming from the dump valve.
when the cars idling the internal valve is not on seat but rattling up and down.
my question is:
would this dump valve be causing my boost problem and is that valve meant to be on seat when idling?

your thoughts would be grateful.

thanks
