Smoother shifting and lag in third, normal or problem?

    So I've been pretty busy with midterms and the stress might be getting to me but I think something happened with my FiSt? It's hard to explain but I'll try.

    I seem to remember shifting from 2nd to 3rd to have a noticeable lurch forward with normal driving (not flooring it) but today it seems to have switched to a buttery smooth transition followed by a surge of power (turbo kicking in + torque) but the smoothness seems slower than the sudden jerk forward I think I remember.

    The shifting seems to have smoothed out and lost it's jump forwardness that I seemed to remember going from 1st to 2nd and 2nd to third.

    I tried it on the highway going WOT in 2nd and shifting around 5k rpm to third there was a slight second of low power followed by the surge of turbo and torque that seems almost like turbo lag, this is actually the first time I've gone WOT while shifting so I'm not sure if this is normal. The powerdrop isn't huge but when I shift it's pretty flat for a split second then picks up hard again.

    Is this normal? am I going crazy?

    You get use to the power double check for any boost leaks see if that helps
