Default Evo 5 Acceleration Problems in 3rd gear up

I own a Lancer Evolution 5 and I have a problem. When in 3rd gear throught 5th gear, if you hammer the gas pedal, at around 5 rpm the car just stops with a "pouff" sound and then picks up speed again. When it happens its hits me hard, almost into the steering wheel. I had my gas tank drained, injectors clean, full tune up but it still does it. Could it be a spark plug gone bad? Or a vacuum leak? And why does it do it only in 3rd gear and up? I can slam 1st and 2nd all i want. Please help!!!!! Email me at [email protected] if you need more info.
