    Turbo problem

    So I was driving down the highway and I saw that I .had a nice little straight of way ahead of me so I decided to give it some gas. Just as the turbo kicked in, it just cut off and then the check engine light came on. Car is still driving fine with the exception of turbo. Any possible ideas of what could be wrong??

    You overboosted. Nothing to really worry about, unless it's a persistant problem.

    What modifications are done to the car? What gear did it occur in? Check the vacuum lines for leaks.
