M3 E46 poor acceleration

Hi everybody I have a 2002 m3 which is giving me a bit of trouble when trying to accelerate quickly. When I want to accelerate hard it will rev out in what ever gear I am in but when it changes in to the next gear it dies and hovers around 4 or 5000 rpm until you take your foot off the throttle and then it will drive as normal. The car drives as normal with any other throttle setting and only happens when you throttle down hard. It does it in any gear changing mode, all gears work and it has recently had a new smg box fitted to try to solve the problem. The original problem arose by shifting through three or four gears before it died then slowly got worse. The car use to be okay. Any surgestions will be appreciated as bmw have been dissapointing to say the least
