It could be a very wide range of things..I'm 99.9% sure that it isn't your clutch though..Because the ECU handles just about everything in that car, I would first advise a trip to the nearest scanner and see if the ECU returns any errors...Also check to see if it will do the same with DSC turn off...Because it sounds alot like the crappy shut down that DSC will do when you dump into second, meaning that there could be an issue with DSC...How long has it been since you had the timing chain looked at? Other things to consider:
-compression check...(don't be scared if #5 is a little lower, it will almost always be)
-change plugs...(get a good exspensive set of plugs)
