You should go to the dealership and try out a similar car to hear how that sounds.

what kind of gas are you using ?

every forced induction car needs higher octane gas.

drain your fuel tank and fill up on 91 octane Shell

94 is ok, but they add ethanol to it.

shell is the only one who has 91 octane without additives, everyone swears by it
