    Default some ideas on a problem i have

    hi guys, ok ive got a cdti 150

    i had the inlet replaced about 6 weeks back and cleaned the EGR and fitted a semi blanking plate (will get the full blank after xmas)

    this didnt fix my problem of' no power at all before 2300 rev

    i did the air box mod and changed the air filter to a k n N one, this did seem to make things better and stopped the turbo from stopping (twice i had no power from the turbo and had to restart)

    things are not quite right thou, if i leave the car for 5 mins to warm up it aint too bad but if i dont then 1st gear has no power, i can floor it and it just creeps up very very slowly, it does this in every gear until i hit turbo a few times and its not too bad but it just dosnt pick up as it should, a few times ive taken off on a round about and its not picked up speed and left me with a car up my arse. i also think my mpg is suffering
