    The kangaroo dance

    The car seems to be getting better each time. It can now dance...the kangaroo dance.

    I have noticed when accelerating pretty hard in 2nd 3rd and 4th & sometimes 5th the Turbo kicks in but then seems to jerk then pulls again jerks and pulls. Also, when it hits 4500rpm, again a sudden burst of power and then jerks again and dies.

    Is this due to a leaky pipe, faulty amm, lambda sensor, ****ed up turbo?

    No engine management light btw

    I thought it could be the heat too mate.

    I have tried to speak to a techie before, but the dude on the desk bluntly just said no, all the engineers are too busy

    The heat sure has an affect on my turbo cabby. Today I noticed that in the heat, the pull is noticeably less and yet the engine sounds a little noisier. No kangeroos though!

    Today was around 30 degrees of course, but thats normal in certain parts of Australia where this engine is also sold! Guess they only get maximum fun there in the night time.
