    Hiya hoochydady , I've got a 54 Reg 2.2direct Elite and it goes like S**T off a shovel, when pulling away. The problem with mine is that it does not always start first time but always starts second time. It's really annoying.

    Try giving the throttle body a good clean out

    hi cheers for the reply its like u have got to press the pedal harder than normal for it to build up i know its a heavy car but is seems slow till its about 2-3 k revs then it will move rapid lol .i have seen posts on the hi p fuel pumps going but no lites on the dash so i take it no codes or would it not show up or has it been turnt back off? its as if u have to boot its ass in first for it to move rapid i thout 2-3 k revs was hi for it to start to ie feel rapid considering the red line is just over 6 and a half so my Q is what speed do u lot normaly change from first to 2nd and where is ur rev counter sitting and how fast a build up is it.( rapid as in u can tell the cars moving rather fast)

    There is mate but its for the Z22SE None Direct.

    Well I think it tells you how to take it off but you just give it a clean your self.

    I went one step further and cleaned out the inside of my Inlet Manifold as that was even worse with Gunk I noticed a major difference when it was done.
