Angry just bought, 2day later, back at dealer

I just bought a ss S/C yellow. on a monday and then I had to bring it back on wed. because if I would give it more that half throttle it would bogg out one me and the boost gauge would read at 20psi. But there was no 20psi going through that blower, cause All I was doing was slowing down. Dealer says that it is the Cat.....but come on now. Any one else had this?

I've already had my cat replaced about 20,000 miles. My check engine light turned on and the tone rattled a lot more than it had before.

Is it new or used? Our cars run way too rich stock because everyday there is a cat failure with the SS\SC.

The car is brand new, they drove it off the show room floor. Now the one thing is, is that it was the test drive model so it did have 150 miles on it. But still it has 172 right now. If this dosnt fix the problem then I am going to tell them to get me a diffrent car. (then I can get the blue one that I want) If anyone has had this problem, please let me know what it was if they figured it out.

Same kind of thing happened to the Evo's when I worked at Mitsu. The get started up a bunch of time just to move them around the lot and the carbon builds up in the cat in which kills it prematurely. I'm 99% sure the cat is the failure on your car.
