It's possible that the diverter valve (DV) has failed. The OEM valve has a plastic diaphragm inside and it can crack. If this happens, the car will leak boost air and will lose power as a result. Go to www.audiworld.com, click on Resources, then Tech, and then go to the engine article about replacing/upgrading the diverter valve - it'll show you where it is and how to do it.

You're not getting enough fuel. You should check your fuel pressure. If you have enough fuel pressure, your injectors are probably clogged up. Run a lot of fuel cleaner through your tank when you put gas in and see if it makes any difference. Lucas fuel treatment is the best to use.

SOURCE: bogs down on acceleration
buy 2 fuel filters. buy can of SEAFOAM at parts store. use 1 f filter to replace old one(you'll probably see old looking gas, with an odor).Pour SEAFOAM into tank. fill up with PREMIUM gas. after about 100 miles change out fuel filter 1 last time..add SEAFOAM every 3-5000 miles and you should be fine. the ethanol in the gas turns to goop and adds water to your fuel, and puts carbon on your valves and through out your emission and fuel system. The ethanol will be alright as long as you follow these instructions. and the SEAFOAM will keep you from having line freeze up in the cold months ahead, and will give you better gas mileage. good luck.
