    Hi all
    I would just like to thank you all for your support over my Landy rear rebuild she now back on the road.
    I have one question driving her on the road is fine,but she looses speed very quickly going up hill or on a long incline.
    She is as standerd with cat and egr system only because I intend taking it to Spain and I know the ITV in Spain is very strict.

    I'm unfamiliar with your build but what wheels and tyres are you running?

    Have you checked the basics like fuel lift pump, sedimentor bowl, fuel filter and air filter?

    Is this a recent phenomena or has it gradually got to this and time off the road and now back on the road has made it more obvious?

    As long as the EGR is still there better clean the MAP sensor with carb cleaner cos it's probably gunked up, insist as the small hole in the bottom near the probe to be clear cos there's the pressure sensing crystal. The CAT is deffinitely affecting power if it's clogged also take a ride with the MAF unplugged and if it's better change it with a new genuine one cos for Eu3 it's very important
