      Enough already. You can sit out for a few days. Anyone else has a problem please PM. We're an open group, but we can only tolerate so much.

      Ok, I did buy and installed a DV+ last week and today I adjusted the wastegate 5mm per what the You Tube how-to video said. I did some WOT runs around town and am going to take a trip down to my dad's and back (video said it needs to be driven about 60-80 miles). So far though, the stutter is still there. I guess the next thing is to check the plugs (I heard you need to change them every 30k miles and the car has 33k on it).
      Any other suggestions are indeed welcome. Thanks for the info guys!

      I would say to check your oil levels and maybe even increase the wastegate to 6mm... i had that when i first got my dart but ever since i did all the adjustments and the mods it has gone away... It may actually be a problem of enough air getting into your engine... have you checked the intake box and filter? also, the plugs could definitely be your problem... my buddy just had that problem with his car, he was breaking up like that under boost conditions and when he changed his plugs after he broke them in it went away. But id rather save you money and figure it out then say go buy plugs and end up havin that not be the issue

      i agree about the plugs, it wont take you more than 5 min to visually take a look at their condition, and then decide if they need to be replaced. I am inspecting my plugs at 20k miles and changing them out at 25K miles.

      He needs to change them out anyway, he's past due on that maintenance. I did mine right at 30K and had a very noticeable increase in drivability.

      Since I bought the car a few weeks ago, I installed a Spectre cone filter on the factory intake hose (just until I can buy a real intake), installed aGo Fast Bits DV+, removed resonator and muffler, and adjusted the wastegate 5mm. Is there anything else I should do/check besides the oil level (which is fine btw) and plugs?

      Have you had any luck yet? I've had the same problem since about 15K miles. I'm now at 31k. I've taken it to the dealer at least twice and they can't duplicate it. The problem is intermittent, which is incredibly frustrating. I even took the mechanic for a ride thinking I could duplicate it, but the issue never surfaced during the drive. I just got the car back last week. They replaced the turbo after it threw and CEL and replaced the master cylinder for the second time (ugh). The stutter is still there. It is like the car just cuts out. I'm going to try the wastegate adjustment, and put in a K&N air filter, and swap out the plugs. The car has no mods. Any other suggestions? I've heard a lot of talk about tunes for this car. How does that work exactly?

      I will be able to share more of my thoughts after I install my CAI plus the boost leak fix. I might get to it this weekend.
      All tunes are aftermarket and YMMV. I don't have a tune and don't plan on getting one until a handheld tune is released and tested by some of the turbo guys.

      I did install the new OEM plugs and the stutter went away...for a few days...now its back. Kinda fucking annouing. I might bring it to the dealer and have them look it over.

      Please let me know if your dealer can figure it out. It is annoying. My dealer keeps saying they can't duplicate it. Perhaps I'll try another dealer nearby.
