Porsche Crest Momentary loss of power???

The car has been acting a bit strange lately. Sometimes, when on a very bumpy road, I get a momentary cut out of power, the car feels like it hesitates for a second. Once it does that, sometimes the power comes right back, and sometimes it does it a couple of times if the road surface is really bumpy.

I plan on checking all the electrical connections this weekend, was just wondering if anyone knew of any grounds that could be causing this. I thought maybe the overboost sensor (since that's what it feels like) wire might be a bit loose, and I have a little jumper that the previous owner used to ground the wire to the intercooler with (bypassing the overboost switch), so I connected it and then reconnected the switch, so the wire is a little longer to rule out that.

Any thoughts or reccomendations?

Bill
