    Faulty AFM?

    Been having problems with very lumpy power.. Thought it may have been an air leek but have notice 3 time now that the t/c light has come on and stayed on. I have done a search and noticed this can point towards to AFM. She has a VXR AFM fitted.. Does it sound like this is my problem?? Anybody know how much a new VXR AFM is from Vauxhall??

    Well it is running at 293bhp (According to Regal) she has all her work done at Courtenay and Regal. She has a 9ltr intercooler from Courtenay. She has a VXR turbo. The VXR AFM and Injectors where fitted by Regal in Jan and was remapped to suit at the same time and also had the regal switch fitted.

    A lot of you will probably recognise her... Here's a pic of her..
