Unhappy Is there something wrong with my turbo/drivetrain ?

Hey ppl.

First thing i need an opinion on is-
MY car doesnt accelerate smoothly.... once the turbo engages the car is accelerating, but not smoothly... I'm feeling something like boost spikes or something similar.. like @6k rpm the turbo sometimes stops pupming for about 0.1s, but I can feel it and I was just wondering whether whenter is it something I should be concerned about.

Second this related is-

When I "step on it", especially on lower gears, while accelerating, the sterering wheel slightly pulls to right side, which is very annoying - is this something I should be concerned about ?

Thanks in advance, Matt.

This sounds EXACTLY like what my freinds nissan 300zx turbo was doing.

He's not as knowledgable about cars and when I drove it the first thing that came to mind was the normal tune up items. He had not replaced anything but oil and air filter for a long time.

We replaced plugs, wires, fuel filter and ran 5gal 91 chevron with a bottle of techron injector cleaner and I blasted back and forth up the highway.

Then we filled up the gas and I let him drive it, no more hesitation. Couldnt hurt.
