Since upgrading my turbo, I've been trying to iron out all the little quirks with tuning and what not.
The latest quirk that developed was a stutter. There was also a leaky coolant hose-- two of them. Serves me right for reusing the factory pinch clamps and not worm gears.
The coolant line that runs from the turbo coolant tank to the top of the turbo was my second line that was leaking. It was dripping on top of the turbo, down to the engine and out the sub frame.
I thought the stutter and leak were two separate components, but since I fixed that turbo hose leak-- my stuttering has gone away significantly.
What's in that area that could potentially cause a stutter?? I just want to know for my own purpose and maybe perhaps help out someone else with a similar issue.
