turbo problem already!

hi,i'm new to turbo cars having recently bought a 96 sti.its obviously had bits done to it (air filter,dump valve,exhaust etc) but i dont know much more.when i got it the turbo would kick in at about 4k and was really fast but now if anything the car seems faster at lower revs than before but i cant feel the turbo kick in at all.the dump valve still seems to be doing exactly the same and the boost guage is still reading the same.i have looked for air leaks and am pretty sure there arent any.has anyone got any ideas please?

turbo kicking in at 4k is pretty late.
