    if you drive it hard it seems ok but you poodle around normal driving cruising along the motorway it cuts out like it always has done i think its a bad map fom bsr personally

    i'm still having problems too - ive been in contact with turbo technics at northampton - here's a response i have had from Pete Petch as i suspected it might be the wastgate creeping - as the spring was getting weak and the extra boost was causing the creep..

    Hi Dez,
    From what you have told me it sounds like you have more of a map problem rather than "boost creep". Theres 2 ways to get round this. Firstly, have the map checked by a specialist ( Courtenay Sport - Jon 01692 404313 ) and see weather the parameters for the boost map are correct. Alternatively lengthen the rod on the actuator so it reduces the boost level. What you will probably find is that when the air temp is cold, you will see the soft fault log more than when the day is warmer. Ie in the summer you probably wont see this problem. Really doesn't sound like a problem with the turbo to me.



    soo..... i might be playing with the actuator rod

    hth both of you

    regards

    i'm in not so sunny Suffolk - so about 6-7 hours from you

    mine drove ok having replaced the solenoids for about 150 miles before the soft fault reoccurred = its just annoying as mine will mostly occur when im in the middle of an overtake and this is normall on "A of B roads" so not the best times really

    i've got commitments over the weekend (including a full day Sunday playing with the new Peugeot RCZ) so at some stage i will have a play and i'll do a how2 for you
    it shouldnt be too difficult (famous last words) touch wood

    i'll be in touch
