spooling up turbo

Recommended Posts

This just happened to me today, while driving my 88 I was going through the gears and high revving (but not over revving) and clunk,thud or what ever sound it made the car stalled like I hit something. It happened in third gear about 5500 rpm as was going into fourth,  I thought the engine let go, no loud noise but felt like my brakes kicked in and almost stops car, granted I lowered rpm and no problem. I tried to see if I might have accidentally hit my brakes using clutch but it did it again and foot no where near brake pedal. Has this happened to anyone else? Vapor lock?

I have had similar, but no noise. Handbrake engaged itself - while I was changing gear, car slowed down dramatically.

I had a similar issue years ago. It was the overboost switch cutting in because my wastegate actuator has slightly seized up.
