I notice that when I'm accelerating I get a slight pulse like feeling in the power, not when I'm stepping on it but slight acceleration. This normal? I'm new to the turbo world so please forgive me.

Mods?

What monitors are available (e.g., gauges, datalog cable, etc.)?

mainly at acceleration to pass a car on the freeway that was lets say going 55 in a 70, no down shift just a little gas and change lanes to pass. Mind you my car is completely stock

Ranges from nothing wrong to a vacuum leak. I can only guess. Have a close look at everything but don't worry too much at this point.

Datalogs will give us insight whether its ECU-related. Know anyone locally with a Tactrix? I've been asked to datalog for quite a few people.

I will check everything out today on my break to make sure there is no obvious vacuum leaks. Doesn't seem that I have lost any power just that pulsating feeling. Sorry I know it was vague just was a shot in the dark.

You're in 5th gear doing 65, you're not really in boost...step on the gas, its gonna shudder a little bit while the RPMs are still a little lower before the turbo starts to spool up significantly. I bet if you downshift and blip the throttle, you will not have any shudder.

Mikie is probably right I'll pay more attention and downshift see if it still does it. Thanks for all the help Guys. I'd give rep but it says I have to spread more rep around before I can give more rep to you guys.. Thanks
