Hi I have a 93 Wrx I was driving the other day just taken off from an
intersection and heard a big wooosh noise loder than a Bov I then lost
all power even at high revs the car did not want to move when I had a
look at the engine today there was smoke coming from around the turbo
area and out of the Exhaust. any Ideas or help would be a great help!

Sounds like a combination of problems and a chain reaction. Given the
fact that the engine is still running, the first choice would be a
failure somewhere in the drivetrain, but when the clutch on my 2004
WRX disintegrated it came with a boom not a whoosh. However, I don't
know what could decouple the engine from the transmission so silently,
but when it did the engine suddenly over-revved and likely blew out a
seal between the exhaust manifold and the turbo, hence the smoke.
Never seen a '93 up close. Subaru kept us out of the loop here in the
states for way too long.
