Default Boost leak?

So i've removed the turbo and their is no shaft play, it's fine. Headers are also great. I should have examined my 02 wrx before doing this. I went along with what my friend (Previous owner) said it'd be. Yeah stupid. Anyway, i went to auto zone got the cel codes, and they were just o2 sensor some other things that have nothing to do with it.

The guy examined it and said their is a huge boost leak, i myself checked too. In between the turbo/ dp theirs a bunch of air coming out, so i'ma grab some gaskets.

Would bad gaskets cause such a power loss? My car feels like a 1.5 l civic. The gaskets did look fried when i removed the turbo. Going to have to redo this!

first of all, that is an exhaust leak, not a boost leak. second, replace the gasket and you tell us if it caused the bower loss. Third, you have told us nothing about the car besides its an 02wrx. what mods? what issues are you having?

a bad o2 sensor could be causing all sorts of problems. what were the "some other things that have nothing to do with it"? becuase they very well could have everything ot do with it.
