Revs erratically


sounds like the rev limiter is kicking in to keep the engine from over rev damage, there should be a way to get the limiter disabled or perhaps get the turbo building boost sooner.

1994 subaru impreza wrx engine light on


Many automotive computers have a RPM limiting feature that tries to prevent engine damage if something is amiss. This should allow you to drive to repair point but keeps the engine from doing a lot of work.
You need to have your computer scanned to determine what the stored error codes are. You can have this done free at any auto parts chain.
