I'll accelerate up an onramp and it always pulls power/torque in second gear under full boost/overboost. What gear does yours seem to fall flat? I don't get that same response in first or third. I think I read somewhere that the ECU pulls power under some conditions, then again, I could be wrong and it may be fuel. Good Luck :)
It's not really that it just falls flat through any gear, it's that it feels like it's cutting out and makes acceleration jerky instead of smooth, and it happens in any gear but most noticeable in 2-3. Before I filled up it was almost like it completely cut out when accelerating but now it feels more like I'm slightly lifting off throttle for a random instant. I can imagine how bad gas might cause this and hopefully with my next full take it will be resolved.

I had this issue or one similar, I thought I had a bad tank of gas or something, it turned out the plugs had blown the gap and was instantly better after gapping them again.

Well damn, guess I'll pull the plugs this weekend to verify gap

Well, found the issue. 3000 miles and they all look like on the left. On the right is one of the original 25k mile plugs. Guess I'll put the 25k mile plugs back in and order up some new plugs. The original plugs were labeled with YPC at the end, newer plugs didn't have that so I must have ordered or received the wrong plugs... Or counterfeit even since I did buy on Amazon.
