Shifting RPM 98 A4 1.8TQ

It seems like when I am trying to shift gears quickly the RPM's stay up high to long and makes the car surge. Is this normal for a turbo car.

yeah, that's normal... I usually shift at 5500 when I'm driving hard.. but I often will shift a little slower so the revs get back down to the 3500 range when the clutch engages.. but even powershifting at that range isn't a problem
