Explain what you mean by 'boggle down'....

You may just be experiencing Turbo lag.

I don't know how serious it is really. I don't want to mean but your descriptions sound a little vague.

If you mean that the car 'bogs down' then yes there is an either serious to very serious problem occurring. It may be a simple fix and it may not depending what the culprit is. If it is fuel, it will range from injectors to fuel pump.... If it is spark, it may just be the plugs or the direct ignition coil.... Air, would be a loose fitting somewhere in the piping.

Any way that you look at it, you have to take it to a diagnostic shop that works on cars with turbos (preferably), and see what they find.

Good luck dude!
