996 TT Power Surge Saga


Vehicle Information: Year: 2003; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 869;

I have experienced the same "power surge" at around 3000 RPM, but I considered it a "hesitation," a sort of "burp" in the smooth flow of the engine. This is my 16th Porsche in 20 years (five turbo's, seven Carrera's, three 928's, one Boxster S) and this is first time I've experienced this. Interestingly, if the turbo is spinning, the hesitation does not occur, even at 3000 RPM. Since the car is only a month old, I was waiting before consulting the dealer, but the recent spate of complaints has piqued my interest. What do you think?
