    bought a new hard drive at the w/end to go into my PC as it has been giving me errors..
    was going to clone the old drive onto the new one to save re installing everything.
    decided to do it last night and when I turns the pc on it wont boot!!
    the old drives decided to pack up so I spent last night and some of this morning re installing windows and all my software

    look for a boost leak, it's possiblt drawing too much air due to it leaking.

    Cheers for that link the maf isnt that old to be fair iirc i got it off byzan last year i think, what tempted me was i was on the motorway and was on full throttle in 5th and all of a sudden it just felt as though the power/boost shut off so i lifted of the throttle then back on and it never did it again ?? Might try clearing it see what happens hope its not the maf !!

    Car doesnt seem down on power it feels better than usual if anything ??

    would a boost spike cause this as this is what it felt like but obviously couldnt match the fuelling will have to get the boost leak tester out !!!

    you see higher boost in warm weather due to less dense air, i would think then that she saw a larger than expected boost spike on high load @ wot in 30 degree temps. Clear and ignore,lol

    im not in any rush to do it i havent even planned on doing it tbh !!

    thought you can do the pump without taking the front end off or is it just more off a struggle with it off ???

    Saturday I fitted a new sump, oil pump, oil filter, oil level sensor and fresh oil.

    New sump, pump, pick up, filter, sensor and oil.

    Fitted my bluetooth upgrade to my Concert setup. And it works, which is good.

    Changed the gearbox oil, I know they say sealed for life, but after 13 years the change of oil has made my gearbox run a hell of a lot smother, with the major change being first & second the notchiness has gone.

    How do you get to the tank?
    Mine seems a bit off every now and then. Keep meaning to check this.

    There's a small round plate in the boot, remove that and it gives you access to the top of the fuel tank which you can open up
    The sender just clips out as one unit once unplugged
    Very easy to get to but run car as low on fuel as possible before you have a look
