    Been having some problems with the map I'm currently running.
    On "enthusiastic" acceleration, I've been getting the emissions light (no code) and lumpy limp mode; or EML and code P0234-11 (Boost pressure Deviation high).
    Checked boost pipes and they all seemed OK.

    When I got the car in April, I had a full service and spark plugs done at my garage. To be honest I trust them and they've been very fair to me.
    I bobbed up today to ask them what gap they had set on the plugs (on suggestions and help from @Dog_Book).
    On my previous 2.8 Signum, they had gapped them to 0.7. So I assumed ......
    This time they said they were pre-gapped.
    I took 2 out and they were gapped to sightly over 1mm!!!!!
    Changed them all to 0.7 and all problems gone, and it now accelerates like something possessed

    I've ordered some Denso IKH24s to compliment the new craziness.

    Getting really quick at replacing plugs in the rear bank now!!

    You did want the higher boost map
    I know it seems to find faults but that one was nuts, make sure you beat the garage with this one. Spark plugs in transit can even close the gap to much if the get knocked.
    At least your getting the right results now.

    Have ordered a new boost control solenoid, after getting that code a few times. Can't hurt.
    Pretty sure it's the original one in the car atm.

    Sick to death of cheap HIDs (including Chinese and LC).
    Not waterproof. Intermittent faults.
    So invested in these expensive beauties.
    Just driven 100 miles and they are so much brighter.
    And a 3 year warranty.
