Anyone know what the problem is?


During heavy acceleration on 4th or 5th gear car will have a sputtering sound, like it has troubles accelerating and will jolt back.. If that's the right term to say that the action it does..
Kind of hard to explain, but I hope ^ describes it enough lol. Thanks in advance to anyone with anyone input

sometimes I cough..a couple of times in a night...

Sometimes we tend to be in despair when the person we love leaves us, but the truth is, it's not our loss, but theirs, for they left the only person who couldn't give up on them.

Make the effort and take the risk..

If you are running a stock tune or a Cobb OTS tune, then the engine is probably knocking so the ECU is pulling timing. For the jolting, your motor/transmission mounts may be shot. Under WOT, the motor does move a bit and will jolt back when you back off the throttle.

Stock tune does not like heavy acceleration in 4th/5th gear at low rpm (under 3k rpm), many folks have bent their rods this way.
