If the ECU senses a mismatch between the timing pin on the flywheel and the
Hall sensor in the distributor , then it will cut boost. This mismatch can
occur due to a cracked or missing tooth on the plastic drive gear of the
stock distributor which allows more rotational error than there should be.
It was a factor at rpm's above 3k in my 200. What you want is a metal drive
gear on the bottom of your distributor. A junkyard unit may very well have
the original plastic gear, but the new ones come with a metal  gear as well
as a new correct narrow rotor.
