Turbo cutting out?

SO i just did a DIY intake the other day and a straight pipe, and my truck is finally able to take advantage of the 80hp chip that is in it. I pulled up to a light yesterday and there was a jackbag sittin there in a dodge, and a soon as I pulled up he started to spool up, so when in rome....... well any how we launched and things were going well but at about 70mph and about 2100rpms I could here my intake sucking air and it sounded it was starting to sputter..... was I making to much boost and things shutting down? i backed out of it a hair and it cleared up... needless to say I got killed. haha

did your check engine light come on right before it started cutting out. My guess is that you built too much boost and your truck defueled.

The 6pos chip wont help the surge. You need a Wicked wheel.
