Like stated above, give it a good tune up. But I'm also willing to bet that exhaust is causing the majority of the problem you're describing. I got rid of my cats and it made a world of difference on my car. When from a 16.3 in the 1/4 bone stock, to 15.2 with strait pipe exhaust and a new air filter.

my st165 is actually having the same issue youre having. the car will start to spool around 1500 or so, and im pretty sure it reaches full boost around 2500-3000. the car will pull but i get that hard pull when it reaches around 3200 or so, and thats from gunning it from a stop. i remember when it didnt pull till i was around the 3900k rpm range so i changed my cap/rotor and it pulled a lot sooner and better. from a stop its like a; pull..pull..pull..then a really hard pull when i hit 3200k. i dont know if this is normal or not.

Did you check your ignition timing? This is exactly what was up with my car, and then I checked my timing and it was 10 freaking degrees off. :)
