Strange boost issue... tell what you think

So I've been havin gthis for a bit of time, but now it's starting to annoy me.

As a background, I have a t7-suite tune, BSR cat-back, Strat DV, and the "bolt mod" done to the top hose of the BPC.

The car runs and idles fine.

But... if I take traction control off, and romp on it, it feels like the boost spikes, and then retards, making less power than my old wagon used to with the same tune.

Would this be due to a bad BPC???

Bad MAF??

Thoughts??

Had a similar issue, replaced all the lines with the blue silicone from GS and it went away...

I'm in West Newbury, went through Rowley the other day...
