    Unhappy Wont rev over 4,500 - please help !!

    I've had the car about 9 months and have ironed out most of the problems ie stalling and rough idle by relacing the air flow meter putting in an air filter replacing the plugs and cleaning and de coking the butterfly valve .
    The big problem is that it never has reved over 4500 . I dont often need to but when you want to get accross a junction for example its really anoying .
    Would very much appreciate some help please .

    Disconnect the battery for half an hour and in turn that will reset the ecu, so hopefully the ecu will learn of it's new program, do allow 250 miles approx and do go through the rev range so the car can adjust to it's new programme. Fingers cross.

    Wondering if this may have a bit of an exhaust restriction as well. Does it seem to pull ok up to 4500rpm? (Can you hear any hissing at high revs?)

    Try this, go to a car dealer and PX it in for a GSi, then rev the **** out of it and pay 3k to get it running again.

    Sorry to dump on you, but I'm kinda drunk and kinda ****ed off right now.
