    yeah m8.. was fine the full way home BUT i had the wean in the car so i didnt go over 60, BUT on the way home from dropping him off at his gannys... that went right out the window! went 3 times, hessitating badly, holding back mid bost and generally just not running right

    I didnt hing a MAP sensor would do that tho.. but only way to find out is to swap with someone and see...

    i could always try replacing the BCS and see if that helps...

    hmmmmmmm

    what you are all desribing is what usually happens when the coil packs are on there way out.car runs fine when normaldriving but boot it and coil packs start to break down so you get a big hesitation.
