    Power Problem

    my dad owns a sri turbo 02 is currently on 78k miles and its serviced twice a year. the problem is it has problems with the power, its either strong or weak. it was invloved in a head on at 50k miles and all that needed replacing was the acutator and the intercooler. its compleatly standard.

    Any ideas??

    its only ragged when warm and left to cool down after. he used bp ulitma pertol

    have a check for boost leaks, and also check the tension on the actuator by adjusting the nuts on the rod. when i first got my gsi the power was pants and adjusting the actuator worked well.

    haven't checked anything yet. when it came back from repair it was fine but now it seems to have its off days. it doesn't seem as strong when your really pushing it
