Default s80 problems

Ok guys and gals, serious newbie with a 04 s80 t6 with 61k miles I have never had nor driven a turbo car before this point the power is unbelievable that being said driving the car i notice a few things that are hopefully volvo/turbo characteristics and not issues. I feel vibration through my gas pedal is that just because it is a turbo or is that maybe the upper engine mount? I notice a clunking noise sometimes when turning the steering wheel it almost feels like the steering stops are hitting is that normal? Transmission was serviced at 59K by volvo fluid is red however i notice hard shifts when driving locally meaning accel decel then accel again normally around 1800-2100 rpm it shifts is that the turbo surging or just normal? i do mostly local driving 5 miles each way to work. The only thing i have changed was i put in new pollen filter and k&n filter always 93 at the pump and fresh oil change.
PS the fuel filter is original has undercoating on it from factory i will be changing it shortly, has not had 60k service done yet minus cabin filter
