Check for boost leaks. Check the intercooler hoses and all the vacuum lines. You should use T-bolt clamps on the intercooler hoses because the hoses have been known to leak or even come off with crappy factory clamps. All of the vacuum lines should be zip tied to prevent leaks and from popping off.

How many miles do you have on your car? We went on vacation in September and during the drive home my 2004 GT misfired and bogged down when I would speed up to pass one of the many slowpokes on the highway. Then when I got back home and drove the car, it actually backfired when I accelerated from a stoplight. I had almost 60K on the speedo, so I changed both plugs and wires. That fixed it, no more misfiring, bogging down, or backfiring. I did use OEM plugs and wires. I had also changed plugs at 30K as recommended by the manufacturer, it had a very slight misfire back then too, but only at an idle.

Two posts of good advice - and let me add - I hope you have synthetic oil in that turbo!
