    Stuttering while in boost...

    Hi guys

    I bought my first turbo'd car las week and it's absolutely brilliant so far!!!

    it's a opel astra Coupe turbo ( i'll put pics up in another thread) 300 miles ago it's had a brand new turbo and i was wondering whether it was normal that it stutters sometimes when it come into boost?

    it's very intermittent and seems to happen when the engine is labouring slightly (in 3rd or 4th). I've been told that the turbo is just running in so i have been taking it easy (ish) untill it "runs in".

    is the stuttering normal?

    also, when do i know when the turbo has "run in"

    Nick
