    Air Filter.. that can gather a fair bit of debris

    Scuttle Plate. Normally loads of junk in that!

    Throttle Body. It can be removed and cleaned, but most report that its generally in good order, so not really worth the effort IMO.

    Vehicle : 2t

    Trim : standard

    Engine : z20net

    Year : 08

    I have sprayed carb cleaner into the throttle body directly and used a toothbrush to clean the softend gunge off the throttle valve,both sides and edges.
    Quick and straightforward

    Is the car new to you?..try servicing it and maybe redex or similar in petrol..

    The turbo should kick at around two n half to three thousand revs and if owt like my 2t be a very smooth kick in the back that just wants to rev all the way to the limiter.

    Bags of torque/low down grunt,I often accelerate in 4th from low down in the revs and she keeps on pulling all the way
