ok, durring 2nd gear and all the way up i notice alot of power loss ussually after 4000, like im going againt a 100 mph head wind, and the rpms raise alot slower. this is the same in 3rd gear, and each higher gear feels worse. this has caused me to only run a 14.2 with the mods below, not the boost controller cause its not installed yet. i have ngk v plugs gaped at stock. im thinking its blow out, so i got some ngk platinum and gapped them to .032 (not yet installed) and my mechanic said that you cant gap a platinum plug because it will hurt it in some way. is the problem even spark blow out? what else could be wrong?

If you have factory 9b turbos could be that...They run out of steam around 4500 and start to loose PSI. One of the reasons to get 13 or 15g's

Love your rims too. Great minds think alike. :D
Mine started cutting out and once the boost lowered it started picking up again. Then I recap'd my plugs

I had low power before like pushing against a head wind and the problem was the o ring on the IC pipe going into the back turbo wasn't seated all the way in. Made that adjustment and all was well.
