    i had a gradual power loss episode wi my veccy, firstly i checked vacume pipes, then swapped my pals maf, nope, then i got a new boost sensor, nope, so i removed and cleaned egr valve,and manifiolds, 193000 on clok so it was very dirty, Almost went and bought new egrr,, anyway re checked vacum pipes, an guess what an effin hole in the turbo sooker one, result, cars goin really well now, and been de catted, must be 120 hp, thank god for not findin my burst vac pipe too soon eh? now lookin at tunin box,, and i recon , the pump wont break, why should it ? anyone got any first hand knowledge of one actually breaking??
