...and the survey says....

Let's do a little survey:
How many of you have ever experienced a real-live over boost shutdown? Mundane words like sputter, stutter, jolt, miss, lurch, and hessitation just don't do it justice. More descriptive words like sudden, immediate, violent, jolt, cataclysmic, dash-in-the-face, instant shut down work better for me.

Richard, did this cause you to break your front teeth on the steering wheel when it happened, or perhaps give you a bloody nose or bloodshot eyes as you suddenly went from 2G's to negative G's? Did it make you want to shout "WTF was that!!!" as you looked in the rear view mirror for signs of piston rods exiting the engine?

All of the ideas offered up are good valid possibilities, and it sure is challenging to diagnose based on written descriptions. But I think everyone on this forum does a great job in that regard.
