    Change the crank sensor yourself, its just one 10mm head bolt, and a plug. ;)

    Yeah, that's why I asked, it could be seen that it was definitely the filter then. Which make filter was the 'pattern' version causing the problems?

    I've been reading that aftermarket, non OE filters can cause low power issues, especially when it's warm. Apparently the thermostat in the filter doesn't allow cool fuel from the tank to enter the injectors, which has a detrimental affect on performance.

    Of course I've got an aftermarket filter on mine too, so looks like I'll be changing that sooner than expected. :(
