    astra 888 down on power/no boost??

    my 888 runs a sport button. 210bhp or 280bhp. in third gear at 210bhp it pulls past 5000rpm but when i switch to 280bhp it gets to 4500-5000rpm and just runs out of power, like the turbo has run out of go, is this possible?
    iam running regal stage 3.5 with standard vxr turbo.

    thanks for any help

    HI liam take a look at the bottom of the inletmanifold
    for the Vac box pipe's do blow off from time to time
    I put them back on with a dab of super glue

    hello danny,
    would that not hinder the boost all the time though?

    it would make the car slower to drive
    I had it on my car
    the dv on the turbo could of split
