Check engine on? Read trouble codes and reply.

No check engine or any warning codes whatsoever.

There maybe an exhaust leak to exhaust pipe going to the manifold or leaking manifold gasket.

Keep in mind even that the ck engine is not on it might be faults in the memory!!! It sound to me like you are loosing boost from a hose or pipe connector

most likely culprit on these cars is the flex pipe for leaks. its usually located right behind the engine under the hood it looks like a sleeve over the pipe. Check it for leaks by running hte engine and feeling for a breeze from around the pipe by puting your hand Near, Not on the pipe.
