Default A little jerky

Hey everyone! This is my first post here on the forum. I got myselft a GT a few months ago and I'm lovin it! Its an '04 with 66,000 miles. Somethin weirds been hapening not too long ago though. Whenever I floor it, It'll jerk a little bit a couple times as the rpms climb. I thought it was a boost leak cuz I have the Mopar BOV installed (it was fine when I first got it installed). I checked for a leak around the BOV but everything was fine.

Anyone know whats happening? Any suggestions would be great! Thanks

Have you done a basic tune up such as plugs and wires? I'd start there as the factory wires are known to cause problems.

That definitely sounds like plugs and wires. My 04 Turbo lite did the same thing. No CEL in the beginning but it did eventually come on. If you have stock wires, upgrade them to aftermarket because the stock are garbage.

And NGK Iridium plugs. Just don't use platinums. Platinum plugs have been said to melt with the turbo engine!!!
