'00 WRX Jerk/Engine Noise

Hi everyone,
I'm new here and not very familiar with the wrx's.

Anyways, My sister's WRX NY00 has a bad jerking (sort of like someone who is driving manual for the first time and stall/catches the clutch when taking off) when the engine is trying to boost up (3-4.5K RPM, lower gear predominantly), as the revvs get closer to redline it smooths out a bit.

Also there is a weird clanking noise coming from the turbo area when it is revved to those RPMS.

I am not quite sure what the problem is but would really appreciate it if someone could give me some insight.


EDIT: Car is a stock turbo WRX, No engine mods.

weird clanking noise isnt a good sign, id pop to a specialist rather then drive it.
