posticon T31 X-Trail TL 2008 - Doesn't feel right

Hey guys,

My TL was going great for the past 110,000km's until about two weeks ago when I was driving onto the motorway and speeding up to 100km/h and suddenly something let go and the car dropped power and felt like it had a blown tire.

So far I have done the following:
1, Changed boost sensor
2, Changed MAF sensor
3, 2 x Cans of diesel throttle body cleaner to clean out EGR
4, Oil change, Oil Filter change, Air Filter & new Provent install
5, Left and Right hand-side front inner CV's (correct x-trail shape)
6, Swapped AT tires for HT tires
7, Purchased a OBD2 scanner - no fault codes found
8, Took the car to a (board) recommended local mechanic in Brisbane but they had no idea.

After getting the new inner CV's replaced there was huge improvement but I can still feel a slight shudder under load at high way speed (eg overtaking on boost), I don't know if I'm being hyper-sensative but I feel like the drive line / transmission (manual) is harsher than normal and not as smooth as it should be - according to the workshop who did the CV's the owner thinks the car goes great, but I disagree.

Any ideas?

If it feels out of balance and sudders you may have damaged the clutch plate, fly wheel, clutch cover, as if cold then giving it full throttle Engadget ent has been known to scrape, scar, unbalance clutch plates. Resulting in a different feel to you, but not others not knowing your vehicle, maybe a possibility?
