that RPM range is the Large DISA open point do it has to be something about air flow.
- Throttle body malfunctioning @ that point
- Valvetronic map enters a new stage at that point, due to new DISA state. Since when tuned it was worse, this could be it.

If you have a shop & time. Maybe take off manifold, connect Throttle body on its own on the side and rev the engine. You should see Throttle body opening & the valves opening. Like the n52 530i youtube video w/out manifold

Although this is alot of work only to see flaps move...
