    As title says.

    the car is boostin normally throught the gears until around 3,000 revs boost dies,revs build slowly then boost comes back around 5,000 revs.turbo sounds diffrent i think!

    Any ideas????

    Why are Zlets always having boost problems!

    Mines playing up aswell. But, mines the complete opposite to your problem.

    I seem to get good low down power and boost - from 2500-3500

    Then the mid-range power/boost dies (like a moped deadspot, if anyones ever experienced it)

    Then I get boost back (kind of!) - from 5000 to redline

    pretty wierd. Im also thinking maybe this is just the way power is delivered due to standard map

    Who knows...Hopefully RR will tell me if somethings up

    Hope you get it sorted mate

    EDIT: I just read back through what you had written in the first post. WTF am I on about...Your problem is exactly the same as mine!

    I think my Air mass meter is dead.

    ...If you sort it mate, please let me know HOW. I will do the same

    ...I feel bad for you man, but at the same time relieved that someone is having the EXACT same problem.
