Intermittent Slight Loss of Power from 2k Revs - Help please

Hi all, i'm new to the forum and Scoobies, just picked up a 98 Turbo and have a problem with a slight loss of power from around 2k revs. The check engine light came on and was showing knock sensor fault. Had the knock sensor replaced, no more check engine light and it pulls better but the problem is still there. Cleaned injectors, replaced plugs, problem still there.

It starts and idles fine but when it gets to 2k feels like you are just feathering the brake pedal every two seconds. it's only a small fluctuation but really annoying and hurting fuel economy as well. I'm wondering if it could be a dirty sensor or fuel pump? Any suggests would be greatly appreciated!

An ECU reset cleared my fault.
