    N54 does not use the DISA valves like the N52 and previous engines did. Could be multiple things but first to start with looking for a intake leak. Any loose piping, torn seals, valve cover cracked, vacuum lines. If unmetered air gets in the engine it can cause surging from the ECU trying to compensate for more air coming into the engine that what it measures.
