    Check your vacuum lines and also boost. I have a tricky one on my golf,there was a split on the pipe between the hard pipe and pancake pipe
    Word!!!

    My A3/Martys Golf would smash that, and this guys £7000 GT9743 supercharged love machine.

    And one last thing to check is the wiring connector on the throttle body (bottom one) check its not lose or wiring bad.

    after reading a fair bit on the net found that the 02 sensor pre cat lamba sensor can get lazy and responds slow to change causing lagging info to the ecu mine ran fine for the first 10 seconds after a start from warm then started bouncing from 720 760 rpm after unpluging sat perfect at 800 rpm going to fit new sensor tonight
