    check the wiring plug on the sensor first, might not be connected properly!

    Guessing you have a handheld scanner rather than VCDS hence the P codes...

    My guess is you have a wiring fault possibly a bad earth or something as there seems one too many electrical faults for it just to be a faulty sensor... in my experience multiple electrical issues are generally down to wiring...

    Check the earths under the battery tray...

    Using vcds....gives both codes but I always use the p codes for some reason.
    I know the coil pack wiring has been messed about with by previous owner as its all taped up so need to give that a good check.

    Ill have a look under battery tray at the earths when I get a chance next. Map sensor in a tricky place to check connections was gonna disconnect it and make sure it's got a good connection before ordering a new one

    Had the battery out tonight gave all the earths a good clean up had slight corrosion on them. Now I have lost the borking when you rev it on idle which is a bonus. Now all is left is when driving put your fit down and it hesitates a few seconds then boost will come on. Not had chance to resan the car tonight but will do it tomorrow see what I'm getting now.
