    dodgy idle and cutting out

    ok, where do i start, car is currently idling shite for the past month, and is even going down low enough to cut out. its not a constant dodgy idle comes and goes, as its been ok over the last 2 days but today it just stalled 3 times in a row. the management light has been comin on with fault codes for over reving and fueling, but these are due to the CS4 map with vxr AMM as far as i'm aware.

    starting to wonder if i'm starting to get bottom end problems as there is a touch of blue smoke and its a bit reeky. running a decat too so its always had a bit of smoke comin out

    the car decided to take the hks off itself last time i was home lol blew the ****er off the mount! what a bang! idles better with the hks back on though instead of the baileys (hate that dump valve!)

    i'm going to get a hold of my mate with the vxr and try his air flow meter. i doubt its that but its worth a try
