Flat spot in 3rd gear

Hi all,

I had a new MAF (bosch) put in yesterday and noticed an instant improvement in responsiveness and acceleration and i'm doing better mpg to the same speed than before the change. i also reset the ecu and throttle body? tonight and then took it for a big drive, I am noticing a flat spot in third gear though, i can hear the revs increase and then when the turbo is meant to deliver a big amount of power, it just sort of dissipates to nothing, gears 2 4 and 5 are increadibly torque-ey, not had chance to try 6th but it's just third gear that's massively noticeable in not doing much...

any ideas?
