    Hello
    My stock 2G GST does not pull hard after 4500rpm in all the gears, the engine feels like its running without any boost after this rpm
    but... the problem doesn't appear while the car is in neutral at WOT

    I've recently replaced:
    -spark plugs cables
    -spark plugs
    -knock sensor
    -gasoline filter

    the car is running at 10psi
    i've checked for boost leaks and cleaned the injectors


    thank you for reading

    Do a compression test on the engine. Any check engine lights?

    i did a compression test when i bought the car, the results were 120psi all across
    yes the check light engine is on
    went to autozone and pulled out one code p0130

    you think the oxygen sensor is the cause?

    Yes I think an O2 sensor could cause this problem.

    You said you replaced the spark plugs. What Brand plugs did you put in?

    try dropping that gap down to .26-.28, might not be the issue but this has happened to my gst before she doesn't like .30

    Factory is .028.
    I run mine much tighter but under much more boost.

    The T25 sucks but it shouldn't fall at 4500, more like 5500

    The T25 minimum boost off the wastegate actuator is 12psi. So you have a boost leak or the wastegate actuator is messed up

    As far a basic maintenance all filters, liquids and plugs have been replaced. Checked the base timing and all marks line up.

    I also checked the FPR with a vacuum gun and hooked up a fuel pressure gauge to the fuel line, everything looks in range on idle and under boost (boost is set a 10psi)

    I don't now what CEL flashing is...

    the problem persist

    Do you have any way to log your ecu? kinda hard to play guessing game without some sort of data in front of us.
