In the past few days when I get on the gas and the turbo kicks in the engine seems to misfire and hesitate. I always run 93 octane with a bottle of boost mixed in. Slower rpms I.e. below 4000 it runs smooth through the gears. Any ideas?
Could be plugs. At that mileage if you have plugs whose gaps have opened up some you could be experiencing spark blowout. Would have to pull them and check the gap to verify. I can't remember what the correct gap is supposed to be exactly but I'm sure you can search here and find it.

Too much to list here. See my Garage for details.
