    Yep but when the boost really kicks in that's when it fails , it may have been waiting to happen and you could have just given it some encouragement

    just to add to this, not only does it go in limp mode when giving it some in 3rd - it also happens when cruising at a steady 70-80 on motorway. When you pull out to overtake and push the accelerator a little harder, and i mean a LITTLE, it will then go into limp.

    Even when the boost gauge is by passed and not connected the limp mode still happens.

    Im currently running on Esso's premium unleaded which i think is 97 RON. Going to try 99 RON if I can find an outlet to see if this has a bearing.

    I remember when courtenay sport remaped my coupe to turbo, they made me promise to only use 99ron petrol.
