    ok, so its been on there for a few yrs now and no probs, but admittedly it has only been a weekend car and probably done around 4k since I had it, but now been using it as an every day car for the past 10wks and now having probs with it going into limp mode now and then in the last 2 wks mainly under load, suspecting the egr valve, tried blanking it off but still doing it, but drives better, did a filter service, still doing it...............could the box be playing up???? can I just un-plug it just to eliminate the cause of the limp mode prob??

    could well be the to do with the box

    could be over fuelling, which is in essence what the box does

    if it was me i would take the box off and if you still want the power then invest in a remap

    Thats only my view on tuning boxes as a whole though, others will say different
