CAR IS NOT ACCELERATING PROPERLY

My car stutters at about 3500-4000 rpm's.
it feels like it is struggling for power, replaced ignition coils (ouch) and spark plugs but still no luck, 2 'mechanics' could not find the fault and both had put it on diagnostic test, I feel it could be something on the ignition system but thats an uneducated guess, please please help!

2.0L FSi?

If yes, could be a broken diaphragm in the bypass valve.

Hole in orange diaphragm. See attached image.
