well i hope this is a power loss issue and not how the car is

when im crusing around it is great good power nice and smooth

but if im opening up it dosent really do anything

its great low end and the turbo spools real nice and you can feel the added power but after a second or 2 it just feels like it hits a brick wall its still accelerating but poorly not like the first few seconds of the turbo and it happens in any gear - crusing along floor it turbo spools up pulls great for about a thousand or 1500 rpms then just hits a wall and still accelerated but slowly and revs slower

just wondering if anyone had any idea what this coudl be

clutch? fuel pressure? fuel injector? turbo?

Alot of times a turbo car can feel like this, like with my car I have it set at 23 psi and it pulls harder and harder the more the boost comes up but when the boost stabilizes it feels like it stops pulling but it really hasnt stopped the boost just is not climbing anymore. If its not cutting out or anything its probably ok, pull your plugs and see if there melted and next time you change your plugs run about a .33 gap so the boost will not blow out the spark pending on how much boost your running if your only running 8lbs dont worry about it.
