    Default Biting the bullet!

    Booked the car in Vxhls to go on the machine next week.
    Cant seem to find out what the power loss below 2000rpm is so a friend of my dads is gonna give it a full check over, test drive and machine diagnostic for £45 which will hopefully come out with some answers!!!

    Well just got back after three and a half hours at the stealers!!!!
    Told me the egr was faulty although the only fault was an old one!
    Charged me £175 (discounted) for the part and fitting only for it to be no different so I made them take it off and put the old one back on!
    Then they told me that its probably a turbo fault which made me mad as to why they replaced the egr just to clear the fault!!
    Not very happy, late for work and £45 out of pocket plus fuel for nothing!!!!!!

    Bought another boost sensor off ebay and fitted. Not made any difference either!
    Really fed up now as im waiting to transfer my private plates onto the car but gonna wait till the issue is sorted.
    Also, Angel Tuning are doing a promotion of 25% off this month for their re-maps which i cant do until this is sorted out!!!!!!
    Love the car, hate the dam engine!!!

    Car has had a new inlet manifold with previous owner so everything is in order and the swirl valves look like new and work properly.
