Default 200 Turbo -engine down on power

Road test verdict from mechanic: "best 0-60 was 11 seconds. There is a intermittent hesitation/misfire under load at high revs. Cruises happily at 80 . Basically fine in normal driving but lacking if u try and drive it quick"

When new the car should do 0-60 in 8-9 seconds (but this would involve a clutch smoking start at 6000rpm!)

We don't think it's producing full power (but its a fresh engine & turbo), and it appears to be producing the normal amount of boost on full throttle (can't remember exactly what the BAR reading was).

We have checked the rubber hoses (vacuum etc.) and replaced several that had perished and were possibly causing air leaks, and it's been serviced +MOTd very recently. Anyone got any ideas what might be causing this modest power loss?
