Turbo doesnt pull consistently (Is this normal)

Is my turbo supposed to pull evenly up to redline? I know it falls off as the RPMs climb, but shouldnt it still be smooth and consistent? Mine is really spurty. It pulls hard in little bouncy spurts as you step on the gas and the RPMs climb. Is this normal or ...?

The sensation is like what it would feel like if you were loosing grip while trying to accelerate really quickly... bouncy in the acceleration, like little cuts in the power. Hopefully someone understand what Im trying to explain.

you guys really need to read the forums more...

its cause its running rich.
two fixes
1) wait for the mitsu tune that should be here by the end of april
2) put on a cone filter/drop in filter to safely lean it out

this goes hand in hand with the idle issue... which you will soon be having too. seems to happen after the ecu learns how you drive on cold starts.

no worries, all is getting figured out. its not your turbo, its not your bov. its just the factory tune.
