+1 Most likely. When it cuts out (and this is an important symptom of overboost cutoff) does the car buck you violently forward to where your teeth almost smash into the steering wheel....otherwise known as "face in the dash" syndrome? Or is it just going sputter-sputter-sputter loss of power? The overboost protection is really quite distinctive as it shuts off your fuel pumps immediately.
