Default intermittent power loss during hard acceleration

First problem found with my car! It's a 2006 supercharged, This problem seems to be intermittent, where sometimes in 2nd and/or 3rd gear I'll try to do a pull and all of a sudden feels like I hit a brick wall, complete power loss rpms drop violently but the car stays running no check engine light. power comes right back and then I can try again and it will pull perfectly fine and smooth all the way up. I've never experienced a problem such as this, any advice would be greatly appreciated, the car has under 14k miles so it has sat a lot during it's life, I don't see any belt shavings/rubber under the hood by the pullies so I dont think the belt is slipping, car makes about 6lbs of boost in 2nd and 3rd gear, no fluid leaks anywhere in the car

Also, If anyone knows how to get an order placed successfully with 281motorsports PLEASE LET ME KNOW!! i've been trying to place an order for over a month, even got lucky and spoke with the guy jason on the phone and he has all my information and credit card, that was weeks ago and I can not get a hold of them and have received no replies since I gave all of my info, are they an actual business? am I just not important enough to become a customer? anyone know what the deal is? Is there anywhere else to order a supercharger oil dipstick? anyone have a spare to sell?

Sounds like your car is breaking up under load, I would look into a fuel issue at this point.

I ordered from Jason a few years ago, he was extremely helpful, and EXTREMELY knowledgeable.

Thanks for the reply, I was wondering if it could possibly be an issue related to the Traction control, I have only noticed this issue with the traction control on, have not noticed it with it off, though the thought just popped into my head so maybe I should test this further. it happens high in the RPM range only in 2nd and 3rd gear, I can't imagine breaking the tires free in 2nd at 5000+ rpms with the car being completely stock, especially not in 3rd gear at such high rpms, but then again I could be wrong, But I havent noticed any wheel spin at all yet, though I have not dumped the clutch, it seems to grip extremely well and makes full boost, maybe i don't know how to drive a mustang? LOL

Then again, the car was only driven roughly 800 miles a year for the past 15 years, perhaps it's got a dirty fuel filter..
