    X18XE1 Throttle Body

    Right,

    this is the second one i have fitted and again it looks like i need to replace it. Is there no one i can send it to to get repaired?

    If not, is there another model or mod i can fit on as a replacement?

    I will be needing to replace it. It keeps cutting out everytime i come to a stand still or after giving the car a rev. My mate at Vauxhall said its a common fault.

    did u try to at least clean it?

    common fault across the entire range unfortunately the added fact that the X18XE1 dont have an ICV makes life even more difficult but it stil more often than not can be cured by cleaning.
