Sounds like a blown MAF if you can't REV past 4000rpm, your car must be in retard mode. Check your plugs make sure the connection are cool, if not put your stock air box on and take it to the dealer. They should warranty it doesn't matter how many mile are on it. There was a recall on the MAF from 98-99. Go to Renick or Irvine. They shouldn't charge you for the part.

Yes, if you own a 99 then there is a recall out for the MAF unit. Go to any Subaru dealer and they will replace it for free (MAKE SURE YOU ASK FIRST).

If your lazy and don't feel like driving, and waiting, for the dealer to fix it, I have 4 MAF units. Tell me where your at and I'll go there and install it for you. You will have to pay me with a 12 pack of Guiness.

Regards, ARG
