Default turbo problems

i have a 2007 sit and i just bought it last friday. when i test drove it at the dealership it drove fine. I drove the car 200 miles home and the last couple of days I've noticed that it runs like. The car idles fine it sounds fine but when I'm driving right as i hit about 2500 rpms and try to give it more gas it runs out of power. The car will still climb rams but it throws you forward, like i said it doesn't sound like its dying it just feels like it. i got on the highway and tried to open the motor up just to get through some gears and it does the same thing in every gear. i had it in 6th gear floored today and there was just no power and the car wouldn't go over 90. I don't know if this is a back pressure issue or a bad waste gate. Im new to turbo cars but but have some general knowledge. If theres anyone who has experienced this or know what the problem is please help me out. Im pretty pissed i bought a car with 70k on it and it runs like this, thanks

Climbing revs with no speed increase = slipping clutch. Take it back to the dealer.
And your post is very hard to read, I'm assuming this is what you are describing.

Yes this post is hard to read.

Fill out your profile so we know a little more info, like what state or country you live in.

In CA used cars bought from a dealer have a one week return policy. I'm not sure what laws you have where you are, but take it back and either get your money back or have them fix it.

you bought a used performance car that is known in the car world to be modded and beat the piss out of. the car most likely needs a clutch the best i can understand what you are trying to say. you have some sort of warranty? you said its from a dealer. bring it back to them.

Thanks for the replies. Yes, I know these cars get the piss beat out of them and that it's used. I bought the car at a Subaru dealership so you would assume they won't cut corners at fixing a vehicle they purchased at an auction. I do have a warranty that covers any mechanical issues through the dealership. I am just trying to figure out what the issue is because I haven't taken it in to the dealership for a diagnosis. They said it can possibly be the waste gate but this was over the phone so obviously it's harder to get a for sure answer until it's looked atin person. Just trying to get more information.

When I say it's climbing and with no speed, it's kinda hard to explain without you feeling it. It will climb in speed but the car is very hesitant. I guess it just feels like it has no power. I don't see how it could be the clutch, the car acts like its starving for air or fuel. Today I got the car to throw to a check engine light and I took it to an Auto Zone and put the ODB2 on the car and the code it threw was "turbo charger" very generic code but when I bought the car they said it was replaced. The invoice says that it was replaced to the stock turbo. I plan on taking it to the dealership to have it looked at and I just thought I could get some answers from this forum. Anything you guys have in mind helps. Thanks again.

I'm not worried about that. I just want more insight from the individuals on this forums who specifically know this vehicle from the inside. Any and all mechanical issues are covered under the warranty. Just wanting to hear some possible ideas.

check for a boost leak. is anything modded? is it tuned? was it tuned or modded before you got the car? check the bypass valve hoses and turbo inlet.
