    Unhappy Really not happy! Need advise!

    Had my zlet fitted with VXR afm and software last friday (8th march) and everything was ok for the next few days.

    Was driving down the M40 last night and cruising at about 70mph, then put my foot down and the car jerking on full throttle and then the exhaust emissions light started to flash!

    Pulled off at next junction, switched car off and on again, all seemed ok.......but when it hits full boost it jerks really bad (3rd, 4th & 5th gear), and the same happens with the emissions light

    Any ideas guys??

    Gunna phone regal in the morning to get this sorted out!!

    Could be one of the lamba sensors or boost solinoids. could be just coincidence that they went a week after you have had the mods done.

    Everything is going wrong at the moment, its beginning to be a really bad month!!

    Was reading through a few threads and most are saying it would be spark plugs/coil pack and maybe afm?

    Its overboosting alot more now in the last few days than it did before............going to about 22psi???

    sounds extremely similar to mine last week. Although mine's not a turbo the problem was traced to a faulty coil pack - as mentioned in some of the other posts.

    I'd put money on the coil pack. The only problem with tuning is that even though parts aren't touched, if any are weak or on their way out they will just let go.

    Not sure on the price but i would be tempted to do all 4 at the sametime - unless they are like £100 each or something !
