Turbo Gasket

I have noticed whilst driving, I have a flat spot, she holds back for a second around 5,000 rpm, its mainly in 4th 5th gear dont know about 6th... (honest)...
But anyway, took it back to dealers, only to find out I have a split in the turbo gasket, no major problem, just annoying, at least its being done under warranty.... also appears that its a fairly new short block engine....



oh yeah.. stumbled across a web site, some handy info on there, and a listing of other usfull sites, but I notice .org isnt mentioned.....
