lost its kick

hi ya all need a bit of advice please ive got an impreza my2000 uk .the problem is it has lost its kick when you dump the throttle ive got a boost gauge (halfrauds one ) it reads 13psi on full boost but car doesnt do what scoobies are famed for i.e push you back into your seat, seems to be very slow to pick up speed, there is also what i can only describe as chirping noise when coming on to boost !! any suggestions very welcome cheers.
