If you are climbing a hill in 4th gear at WOT, does boost go to 1.7,
drop to 1.3, and then cycle back to 1.7 again?  If so, sounds exactly
like my problem.

Yes, I noticed this myself.

My money is on the distributor.  How hard is this guy to replace?  I
know it's tight back there with all the wires and crap, is it just one
bolt holding the distributor in place?
