Default Power Loss

Hi every1...

Since monday i've been experiencing a powerloss on my '03 GT its like if
the Turbo wasn't kicking in and it only happens in the morning when goint to work.

In the way to the office i join to heavytraffic/highspeed highway so i need to go from 0-10mph to 50-60mph really quick without problems but since few days ago i go 1st it revs up to 2.5k too fast without speed gain, from 2nd to 4th revsup to 3k each for each gear with fair timming and acceleration ... but if any time i need the turbo punch (as when a 10 ton truck is comming rolling at 60-70mph in the same line where im joining) i can't hear the whining of the turbo... its supposed to start over 3.6k RPM right? instead car revsup roaring but no boost.

When i go back to home (around 7 or 8 pm)... the things are pretty much different, although the 1st gear stills short, the turbo kicks in normally.


Oh well almost hitting the 12.5k miles so it's time for service.

about the problem, they reflashed the PCM and everything is fine now.
