Have the plug wires and the rest of the ignition ever been changed? Start with the plug wires and also have the fuel pressure checked under a load. Check for jumped cam timing and blocked exhaust as well causing excessive back pressure.

SOURCE: 91 turbo pops and runs bad at about 5PSI of boost

Did you check the fuel pump relay? It might not be a problem with the fuel itself. It might be an electrical problem. Get a DVOM and do a resistance check on the relay. if you get a high resistance its just a bad relay. If it is a bad relay then the car will crank without turning on.

SOURCE: runs with a miss

I would recheck the timing first. iven it is off readjust. if this doesn't solve it ,then replace the knock sensor which is located on the back of the engine just where the trans and block connect on the passenger side. if the problem still exists then it's most likely an internal problem involving a worn cam/lifter. if a lobe on the cam or a lifter is severly worn your valves don't open like they should thus causing a miss.

Not hitting full boost

Get a code reader and read the ecu (Engine computer unit). If codes pop up, that's what will need fixing...

I have a 1998 WRX and it won't boost over 5psi?

You most likely have a problem with the wastegate staying open and bleeding off all the 'boost' because your vaccum lines are incorrectly installed. The vaccume line leading to the wastegate must have sufficiant pressure to keep the wastegate shut until the desired 'boost' level has been met.
