Turbo sounds funny

I noticed the other day while driving that the turbo isnt spooling smothly, its sounds like it is studdering if thats what ya wanna call it. would that be a hint to put it back to stock and take it to the dealer? im running the 275 and have been running it for the last 10k miles, thanks erik

If it isn't throwing codes or parts hanging off, the dealership won't (or can't) do anything. All you'll get is "thats normal" or "cannot duplicate problem" , run it until it breaks all the way then take it in would be my suggestion.

Does it happen in 3rd gear about 20-30 psi? If so I was having the same issue with the 275, don't know if it's the cold weather, it has "detuned" or what. I just switched to the 210 and haven't heard the problem sense last night. Almost like the turbos hitting a rev limiter or sputtering while building boost between 20-30 psi.. thought it was my foot bouncing on the petal but I have caught it with cruise control. Since I haven't heard it with the 210 i might just reload the 275 and see if goes away
