New Member - Flatout - Also Help Required

Hi to all - flatout is the name. From the posts and threads i have read already it seems like I have joined a lively and interesting bunch.

I have a minor technical problem that maybe someone out there can help with or has experienced.

The car is a 1998 Impreza Turbo. No mods, 100K trouble free miles. The problem is if accelerating very hard in any gear around 3 thousand revs there is a momentary compete drop off of power. As you can imagine this is quite dramatic but as it is only for a split second and then full power is immediately restored. Slightly less aggressive acceleration and there is no problem and anything above 3500 rpm and all is fine. Ant suggestions or advice is welcome.

Once again hi to all.

sounds like a classic case of overboost. could try an ecu rest to see if it clears it. normmaly its caused by decatting or chainging the intake but sometimes the ecu can just loose its way.
