    I'm thinking map sensor but I'm open to surgestions, clean ones @holiday chicken. starts fine but if you give it a right foot full it will rev to 3k then it's as if a rev limiter kicks in and the power drops to nothing. If you lift off then power is regained .Ta, 30 years on and still no justice for the 96, where has the time gone, must seem a lot longer for the families.Sad times,sorry to be morbid

    Don't know why it's double posting, bad day today,thinking about a friend ,now past away who lived for years with the guilt of Hilllsborough.He survived but had the bruise of a girl's face on his chest for weeks after the event, he couldn't get over the thought of being involved with her death l don't think he ever got over it.

    What vehicle, I thought L322?

    Give your MAP spray with brake/contact cleaner and check the vacuum pipes? Your spills were gone so maybe same stuff?

    Waste gate is good idea they can get bunged up with mud and road crud tucked away over time. Stick the air hose in there. Worth a shot MAP sensors are too pricey to whim

    If that's all that's been near his waste-gate then @holidaychicken let him off easy.

    Brake cleaner on the MAP is not a good idea.

    Assuming this is a P38, does it have EGR? If it does, and it's not already blanked, pull the vacuum pipe off the actuator at the manifold, block the tube with an M5 screw. An electrically duff MAP sensor will give you a problem, but if the car has a MAF, try unplugging it. A duff MAF can restrict performance. If the MAF is faulty, unplugging it will immediately show a difference.
