I think a sentence needs a period at the end of it. I have no clue what that was.

Start by putting on the factory BPV. Then check all the vacuum lines. Does the car have any CEL's?

So... you took out the recirculating hose that plumbs back into the intake... and plugged the nipples on both the intake and bpv?
And then you bought a BOV and installed that?
Then you took the BOV off and put the stock RECIRCULATING BPV back on, WITHOUT the hose that RECIRCULATES?

Why would you do that? This thread and your logic make 0 sense.

Ditch the crap bloww off valve, get a stock recirculating one. Use a new gasket, make sure all mating surfaces are clean and clear of debris.

Do you have the hose back into the intake? Or is the hose not attached?

Do you have an aftermarket intake?

Does your new 60 trim turbo flow the same amount of air as your OEM turbo? The blue injectors you are talking about in your original post, are they light blue (440cc) or dark blue (560 cc)? Did you tune your ECU when you put in the new turbo? If yes or I dont know is your answer to question 1, you are probably ****ing up your car. If you answered light blue or don't know to q 2, you are probably ****ing up your car. If you answered no or don't know to q 3, you are probably ****ing up your car.

Best place for you to start is reading the FAQ's in unabomber's Manifesto http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=533787 . Turbo, fuel injectors, and engine management/tuning FAQ's will have a bunch of stuff you did not know about before today. This could be a simple issue dealing with a leak or something hooked up wrong, but if you upgraded without understanding the steps to follow you could be looking at a new block. I would stop driving the car, or at least keep it out of any boost until you get stuff straight. This is not a car that likes having parts thrown at it willy nilly.

Why are you ignoring everyone's request for you to use proper punctuation and make complete sentences?

I did not ask who put the turbo on your car. Go back to the Q and A section of what I wrote, you answered "Light Blue, I don't know, and some other dude did it so I don't know." A scanner is going to tell you f-all when it comes to WOT afr, if you mean a Cobb AccessPort then you might get an idea. This is not necessarily a mechanically inclined and my Dad has been doing this since JC was a corporal type situation. It could be something easy that shows up with a leak test, replacement of vac lines, etc. Or it could be you are ****ing up your engine. It is as simple as "You don't know." Take it to someone who does. An import shop that specializes in Subaru turbo engines.

how long did he have the parts on it? did he **** it up and couldn't figure it out so he sold it?
You seem in over your and your fathers heads, you need to take it to someone that knows what they're doing with YOUR car, meaning a Subaru mechanic. Ideally a local tuner shop, they'll have a better idea what to start looking at/for. If it's still stock injectors and non upgraded fuel pump, it's not getting enough fuel to run that turbo. Call the kid and ask him about EVERY part he put on, find out how it was tuned....
have you checked ALL your vacuum lines?

Get your head out of your ass.

These guys were way nicer than I expected them to be. There is plenty of helpful advice and people in this thread which you continue to ignore. It is clear you don't know anything about your car. The mechanics of the internet can only get you so far, get your car to a shop that is familiar with Subarus and go from there.

OP, you have literally posted NOTHING that could even possibly be considered useful information.

Post in 'Merican with complete sentences and we will try and help you.

Do not post 'hi guys car broke make noise help me?' and expect us to know what the **** you're talking about.

well you've told us:
your car won't hold boost over 5700 rpm
you don't know all the parts on the car
your Dad has been a mechanic since the end of time and is clueless
you've not confirmed anything that's been asked, except the color of the injectors

Cars don't get fixed over a forum from someone in over their head. Seriously, what were you expecting with the info and lack of ability you've provided?
If you think this wasn't helpful, just wait. It can be far uglier on here. You need to take the car to a Subaru mechanic NOW, or when they have to install a new motor....you choose what's most cost effective.

Dude, you got far more help and less ripped apart than most that post such limited info. Hope you get it sorted out.

Just take it to a shop if u don't know anyone who knows subies enough. It's not wrong to get outside help. And btw...wiseman once said doesn't matter how much u know about cars...subies are a different breed...

Then sell it and buy a Honda. You've provided no information, rarely answer the questions asked, and even posted this thread twice with different, but still unusable information.
