do you have a boost gauge? maybe you cracked your fmic or kinked a hard pipe when your bumper hit. do you hear any weird noises? can you elaborate on "it sounds like its stuttering"?

A busted cat or exhaust leak after the turbo would just increase power, only a leak before the turbo would cause you to lose power. Might want to check all of your IC pipes to see if there is a leak and check your FMIC since you did say you broke the bottom of your bumper.

If it sounds different there's a good chance you could've busted up your exhaust.

ok just got under there. it a FAT dented in cat. my car still sounds like a mix between a subaru and a bmw its deep but has that shuttering flapping noise kinda sound. RPMs are a lil messed even when starting the car.

dude that sucks. what were you doing driving the b5 anyways? Maybe you broke a bunch of cells in your cat and thats what is makingthe shitty noise, and restricting flow so you are feeling weak.
