Default No power

I just got a 92 Talon TSI from my brother. I has been sitting in his yard for a year because it has a problem. It runs, but has no power and does not go over 30 MPH as a result. Does anyone have an idea of what the problem is? I always wanted this car, so I'm hoping I can get it fixed.

Thanks!

go and check the simple things first, spark plugs cables, and do a compression test on it

Boost leak is what I'm betting.

Check the basics like timing how old the fuel is, plugs, wires and also do a boost leak test.
