Taxiing from west ramp to east ramp. I was on taxiway juliet ground instructed me to cross runway 17 and make a right turn. I crossed runway 17 and took a right turn onto runway 13R. As soon as I realized I was on an active runway I executed a 180 degree turn and added power to exit runway. I added power too rapidly and the engine was not warm. The engine stalled and an airline jet had to execute a go around. While the engine was stalled I was half on the runway and half on the taxiway. The engine restarted without incident and I exited the 13R. Contributing factors. Poor quality headset, unfamiliar with txwys on apt. I should have asked for progressive taxi instruction. Callback conversation with reporter revealed the following information: reporter states controller's intended route was juliet to hotel, right to lima, cross runway 17 at microphone. Instructions did not really give this information, very minimal. Pilot confused. Hind sight indicates clarification was needed. No further action from FAA.

Title: RWY TRANSGRESSION, TAXI.
Narrative: TAXIING FROM WEST RAMP TO EAST RAMP. I WAS ON TXWY JULIET GND INSTRUCTED ME TO CROSS RWY 17 AND MAKE A RIGHT TURN. I CROSSED RWY 17 AND TOOK A RIGHT TURN ONTO RWY 13R. AS SOON AS I REALIZED I WAS ON AN ACTIVE RWY I EXECUTED A 180 DEG TURN AND ADDED PWR TO EXIT RWY. I ADDED PWR TOO RAPIDLY AND THE ENG WAS NOT WARM. THE ENG STALLED AND AN AIRLINE JET HAD TO EXECUTE A GO AROUND. WHILE THE ENG WAS STALLED I WAS HALF ON THE RWY AND HALF ON THE TXWY. THE ENG RESTARTED WITHOUT INCIDENT AND I EXITED THE 13R. CONTRIBUTING FACTORS. POOR QUALITY HEADSET, UNFAMILIAR WITH TXWYS ON APT. I SHOULD HAVE ASKED FOR PROGRESSIVE TAXI INSTRUCTION. CALLBACK CONVERSATION WITH REPORTER REVEALED THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION: RPTR STATES CTLR'S INTENDED ROUTE WAS JULIET TO HOTEL, RIGHT TO LIMA, CROSS RWY 17 AT MIKE. INSTRUCTIONS DID NOT REALLY GIVE THIS INFO, VERY MINIMAL. PLT CONFUSED. HIND SIGHT INDICATES CLARIFICATION WAS NEEDED. NO FURTHER ACTION FROM FAA.
