    Ahhh I think I know where they are - think my vets is right by it. I can’t have two financial drains so close surely?!
    I have done lots of searching and seems it’s more common than I thought. Saw banks had it on his few years back and crank sensor cured him. When I changed it it puffed a bit. I pulled maf and she ran nicely. Fingers crossed. Was amusing I had the sensor and tools in back. My theory was that was the main thing that could strand me so I’d always carry one!! Think I’ll remove it in the airport car park too lol

    Seems I should’ve dropped it in. Just driven it down the road and it feels like it loses half of its power and goes jerky

    Thanks - I’m going down to new forest tomorrow for a birthday surprise and Gunna be in **** if she don’t make it.
    I just gave it some beans. Actually feels like it could be overboost. High end of revs especially in high gear is useless. It’s like a non turbo at 55-60

    Further developments. Drove it for an hour and half, it was just like it was on half boost the whole time and 5th was a weird experience. Got to my destination, let it cool and had another mosey.
    Pulled red plug and found oil in there. I’m hoping said oil caused all my probs?! The lack of accelerator when I broke down and the now lack of power.
    New harness ordered - fingers crossed

    Well I’ve done what I can without nanocom and sadly had no joy.
    I cleaned the maf, map, accelerator, changed cps, cleaned out ecu and plug with circuit cleaner, changed injector harness, checked wastegate isn’t seizing, cleaned earths, ran a direct earth from ecu post to battery...
    I noticed my ecu had ‘remap’ written on it - had no idea but did think it used to be quite gutsy.
    Next thoughts are, fuel starvation, accelerator pedals no good, delaminated hose or other boost leak, wastegate modulator - the list goes on and on until you can actually read it all via diagnostics.
    Hopefully they find it to be something not too hairy tomorrow.
    That’s one issue but the other is the no throttle when it got wet!!
    I’ll leave it to the pros to diagnose.
    Could admin please move to the piece of **** td5 why didn’t I wait for a clean 300 section for me?

    Hi, Are you able to test the fuel pressure at the FPR. I believe it should be 4 bar. This will help rule out the fuel pump.

    Thank you - they’ll be able to tomorrow yes. It does feel like fuel starvation. I try and get boost and I get a hint of it then let off and it’s a bit jumpy then settles
