Ok, got the car back today, i was the one with all the stuttering and what not. Mechanic told me for those of us that drive the car the way it is meant to be (hard), we can overload the pvc. So the more we boost the more likely, and once that happens oil can build up and be in the turbo inlets, intercooler, all the sensors, everything, so he flushed my whole system, and it works now. So apparently i didnt need all those parts last time. Also the manager owns a blue 04 and he had the same problem, and he said that they will have a generic solution for it down the road, (chrysler corp. that is) but at the moment it causes no harm, and for those of us that it is happeninig to, to just work with them and bring it in. reply with questions or insight

yeah it was a dodge mechanic, i wont take it anywhere else, for warranty and record purposes. but it is running perfectly fine now, so who the hell knows, he says there have been more cases of it, so glad to hear its not just me, and that it isnt major

I've experienced studder ever since I accidentally installed my Turbosmart BC backwards (essentially running FULL open) with an AGP wga. I mashed the throttle and boosted off the charts and quickly let off, then changed my knickers. After installing the bc the correct way I could still never get it tuned the way I wanted, so I went back to the stock lines/wga bent slightly shorter (omniphil free wastegate mod).

Even now, with a mild spike of 16psi it studders at wot until the boost starts to drop off. I'd love to know possible explinations. When I was running with the AGP wga I was expecting studder by taking the ECU out of the loop; but I've since went back to the stock setup. Other than the studder, the car seems to be no worse for the wear.

dirty, have you checked to see, if it was the sensors, or maybe oil building up, cuz that would do it. Also, have you seen any oil on your driveway or anything, it would just be do to flooded parts, not like a leakage. It seems like the only explanations for studdering or anything like it is a fuel/ air problems or anything related to those, ( all the sensors, tps, pvc, 02, anything.) thats my guess

I have a catch can installed, and there is about 1 or two teaspoons of oil built up every oil change. I haven't noticed oil anywhere unusual given a quick visual under the hood, or on the ground. Nothing is jumping out at me.

Which sensors (and where) should I look at? I understand how turbo's work, but I'm not well acclimated to the fine details. Should I check the PCV valve also? If I was to take it off and look at it, how would I know if it's faulty or not?

*edit* I've also reset my ECU twice thinking I had freaked it out somehow.

dirty, i think if you were to find the problems parts you would knkow it, they will be pretty covered in oil, you may want to check the intercooler and turbo inlets, they can build up too, and yes the pvc. you might want to just take it in , if your warranty is still good.
