    problem resolved or another ..............

    sorry too create another topic but i think i ve may have just found the reason for my lack of performance !
    basically had another look over the engine and it appears that directly underneath the crossover pipe at the top of the engine , one of the hoses had become disconnected /broke !

    Its a breather and should just connect back onto the pipe you can see

    And yes it will cause an airleak so make your engine run different

    take off the hose clip an push it back in the pipe

    Mine broke a while ago too. Ordered a new one from autovaux, but yours looks like it will just reconnect.
