    astra coupe turbo playing up

    hey fowlks, im brand new to this, just bought my self and astra coupe turbo, its done 97k but got paperwork from vauxhall to prove it has been re-conditioned so technicly its done 46k.
    few probs though,
    when i go to boot it the engine juders and it doesnt really have any boost, iv ordered an opcom but its not here yet, iv put bosch super 4 in it and im taking off the crap induction kit and putting on the 2.2 air box but again thats not here till tomoz. the boy i bought it off said the actuator is sticking and that that needs replaced, would that cause the car to handle the way is it???
    also duno if this is right or not but the is a bailys dump valve fitted to the car but when im driving there is a constant sound like air leaking coming from what sounds like the front drivers side off the engine bay, and the harder i rev the louder it gets? could it be the dump valve isnt fitted properly or is that normal?
    any feed back will be much apreciated

    cheers

    the bailys do leak air its when the spring gets weak i would advise getting a collins dv, that will solve your air leak

    as for the engine juders could be an engine mount but im sure someone will be on soon to help you more
