no power under 3k

hey all i seem to have a new problem with my impreza. I just recently pulled my engine out to do the clutch. When i fitted everyhing back together it seemd good untill i started driving it. As soon as i take off i have very little power under 3k, if i give it too much gas the motor will bog out and i wont gain any speed or rpm. If i am light on the throttle it drives like a dream. i checked and rechecked all my hoses and wiring. cant find anything out of the ordinary. Could i have damaged a sensor? fuel pump going bad? AAnyhelp will be appriciated thanks

Re: no power under 3k

Not really sure what ones to check. or how to check them lol. Does anyone know how to check the MAF sensor, i have heard of unplugging it while running but does anyone know what voltage or resistance is supposed to be?

I will try that later. Also there is no check engine light, but that doesnt mean its not going bad i guess

Hey all...After much checking and rechecking i found out that when i pulled the motor i also did a timing belt. Turns out that the timing was off by a little. fixed that and now its good as new
