Problem...Please help

I have an 08 completely stock, except cold air intake S&B... the truck on 3 occasions has felt and sounded like it sputters and cuts out. All 3 times it has happend was on the highway...Also I heard a pop from the turbo area today, but never effected the trucks performance... just kinda sounded like a balloon popped under the hood, best way i can explain it

I know if I take it into the dealership they will want to hear the sound and feel the sputter, but i cant get the truck to do it when i try...its very random

Has this happend to anyone else? Or idea of what it might be?

May have been the veins on the turbo opening or closeing, as for the loss of power I can't say, may not be related to the noise.
