Question about Volkswagen Passat
It sounds like you have a leak/ruptured hose on the high (pressurized) side of the air intake. Check the hoses going to and coming from the 'intercooler'. There's a good chance you have a crack that breaks open when you have enough pressure (during accelaration as the turbo spools up) and once the pressure eases up, seems to work normally. You should remove them both and examine closely, looks for cracks that get worse when you flex the rubber hoses. If you confirm, order replacements and just don't push ******* the accelerator.
