MAP sensor. Look on Google to see what the readings should be when you test the circuits. Its real easy to check yourself, all you need is a multimeter. Classic syptom of a failing MAP sensor is power loss on inclines. Its the cheapest fis, failing that, there could be trouble with piston rings, or with the Impeller of the turbo being damaged. Good luck

find your local vw service center and see if they can plug their computer in to see if there are any codes on the cpu. there may be one for an intermitent for the turbo. i ran into the same problem last month and it was the turbo veins are sticky so occasionaly it lack power going up hills. it did not cause the check engine light to come on, but there was a code on the cpu when they checked it. if it happens again while you are driving, pull over, shut the car off for 10-30 secs then restart it and see if it makes a difference. when it happened to me i called my guy and thats what he had me do and it was like a new car after that.

standing at the front of the car pull the cover off the left side of the motor and check the belt. No tools are required the check the belt. Cover pulls up and off. It's to the left end of the valve cover.

check air filter. good chance it is clogged also the shut off valve could have serious carbon build up both of these items are easy to look at. also unplug the Mass air flow meter if power returns or is better good chance it will be that. which will have been killed by a clogged air filter.
