    Unpropotional Turbo Boost

    Hey guys...here's the isue I am having -

    when the turbo kicks in around 2700 rpm, it suddenly spikes the boost and the engine instantaneously gains 2000+ rpms without really accelerting that much, then it drops about 1500 rpm or so and then resumes normal dirve....it happens in every gear.

    I changed the O2 sensor after the check engine came on (checked code first to make sure it is in fact the O2 sensor) also did some research on here on power surges and gathered that it may be a dirty MAF..

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks in advance

    might wanna have it checked out since it only happens when boost hits

    in case it is the clutch, do you have a link to instructions on how to replace it?

    thanks for the feedback btw.
