Too Much Air?

2 posts in this topic

Got to the bottom of a feeling of power loss today😃

Had been thinking that it was a little sluggish and the exhaust note was not quite right.

Whilst cleaning the engine bay I noticed that the vacuum pipe from the

Inlet plenum had dropped off at the vacuum canister above the wheel arch.

Popped it back on and it sounds much better but would cut out when closing the throttle.

So did the ECU reset (5x throttle operation).

Went out for a drive and the difference was quite amazing the overall acceleration and top end was vastly improved. Could quite easily have emptied the tank if I had the time😃


So extra horses on board for a no extra cost!


We'll it is Xmas!
