    Thank you for the reply. The problem started when my son took the positive battery cable off 1st then the negative in order to install a stereo system. The car will run well until it warms up and then begins to stall and sputter, apparently it is running too rich. Replaced the oxygen sensor, spark plugs, fuel filter, air filter and brain. Had the ignition coil cleaned ran better and then the problem started all over again and everytime it goes out on a test run the plugs have to be cleaned or replaced again. The local mechanics don't seem to know about Subarus and also the codes run off and on again. Thank you so much for your advice. Will see about fixing the secondary voltage on the coil pack.

    Check your secondary voltage on your coil pack. Do you know how to do this?

If your car has coil packs it is most likly them. Some Impreza cars especially the Turbo versions have individual coils built into the lead at the plug end. If your car has these then they crack down the side . If you take them out you can see a fine crack in the plastic. You cannot fix them, they have to be replaced. Check to see if you have them, it might help.

I own a 94 impreza wrx imp, when accelerating fast engine seems to lose power or get stuttery after 4000rpm, this has only started since being serviced, any ideas?

I would start with the fuel filter. If the flow is restricted it drops pressure needed at higher RPM's. Then check Catalitic converter. May have restricted the exhaust flow. Always good to start with the basics. Good luck and have a great day.

Subaru impreza 2l turbo, 1994, starts fine and

your spelling is horrid.   I think your boost control valve or pop-it valve is defective.  Also try a basic tune up with plugs and filters.
