having problems with the boost?!?

hi im new to this so here goes! i have a impreza 2000 uk spec i am having problems with the boost?!? been ongoing for 3 months now!! the car will idle fine and if i give it light throttle will rev all the way to 7000 rpm,. soon as i give the throttle full load it starts poppin and missing at around 4000 rpm?? its like as soon as it hits posotive boost?!? i havve changed tha maf sensor a few times changed the knock sensor and lamba but still the problem is there! (so annoying)... i have been told it could be the boost solenoid?? is this a likely cause or has anyone else had the same problem? thanks for listning!!!

Re: having problems with the boost?!?

Assuming the plugs are ok and gapped right, fuel filter is ok then first Id clean boost solenoid with carb cleaner and restrictor pill to the pill located just off vacuum hose off actuator if that fails try coil pack any check engine light up???
