    Boost sensor or leaks in intercooler hosing are favourites for that,but not limited to those!

    Get the code(s) read and find out the easy way.

    IMO tuning boxes are one of the reasons that various codes are thrown up,and even taking the box off doesn't always put things right.

    I took off the EGR to day and it was not that bad the plunger moved freely so I did not strip down,cleaned off all the soot and checked movement on the valve all ok,where the pipe goes onto the engine that was grungy with oil and cack,cleaned all that up,I then took off the boost sensor and that was well cacked up ,cleaned it all using a multi purpose solvent cleaner I got at Screwfix plus toothbrush [must remember to rinse it before I clean my teeth] and a cooton bud,The major problem is not to drop any screw or gaskets down behind the engine guess who did ,
    all back to gether and went for a test run all seems well Was about to give it some stick down the by-pass when a Traffic car came off roundabout in front of me so could not give it a hard acceleration ,that will have to wait untill to night !!.
