SO just to be clear you have an 2002 wrx and you are asking for help with it in the pre-2002 forum?

If this weren't the PRE-2002 forum I might ask if your getting any CEL or what a OBD2 codereader is telling you. I might also ask if you have any sort guages such as a A/F guage to tell if your running lean or a knock light to tell you if your ECU is detecting knock and retarding timing as a result.

I might also recommend seafoaming the engine via a vacuum line to get rid of hesitation from carbon or varnish buildup. However since you do have an 02 I'd mainly recommend an accessport and a proper tune as its not in your list of Mods.

Also there is better help to be had in the correct forum.
