the bucking could be a number of things. Could be a fuel pump not being able to deliver enough fuel, or a poor fuel filter, maybe even an injector that's getting worn out.

Try turning the boost down and see if the problem goes away. If it does, you know it's related to turning the boost up. If the problem does not go away, then it could be a vacuum line or something non-higher boost related.
