car cuts out at 3,500 - 4000 revs

Hi I am a newbie on the site but I need some advice about an itermittent problem I am having with my 97 Turbo impreza. When I put my foot to the floor in 4th or 5th gear at around 3,500 - 4000 revs, the engine dies completely for a couple of seconds and then judders back in to life immediately. If I build up the revs slowly it does not happen. Anybody got any idea what the problem might be? Thanks.

you should run a diagnostic on your car. But seems to be a problem with the MAP sensor. Also known as Pressure sensor.
