Weird power feel

So i have a question. Car running fine but every now and again i get into it and once i get to the upper RPM in maybe 3rd or 4th the car feels like its slipping, like the RPM's climb faster than the car feels like its pulling.. Im still new to the feel of the car and or power band, says its boosting fine and everything works good, its almost like breaking tires at higher speeds but i dont think its spinning... Have a good amount of mods and tune.. Am i tripping?.

You are not tripping, but rather your clutch is slipping.

Look into your options for a new clutch (335is, Spec Stage 2, Act, etc.)

I'm in the middle of a clutch swap right now and it is a LOT of work.

What mods are you running ? Could be your clutch.

How are your tires?

My car feels weird when it's the first boost pull of the day, boost doesn't kick in all the way. Once i get the first boost out of the way car feels fine. It's like the turbos need to wake up

Ah.. Welp... Guess its time to go looking... Whats the rating on the 335is or spec stage 2?... Whats the power rating on those?... Tires are good

Mods are
Bms filter
Jb4 g5
Mhd flash
Bms 3" downpipe
FMIC
ER charge pipe w tial BOV

Guess its time for clutch upgrade as if it is slipping now the inlets will finish em off
