Sudden surge of power rocketing up the hill- tells me your engine is burning enough oil to be running on the oil (like having bigger injectors).  Be aware that sometime you might have a run away engine with it running on the oil.  Make sure your emergency shut down flap is working correctly.  Sounds like you'll be needing it soon.

I agree, you are surging on crankcase oil. Are your blower seals ok?
