    got an audi a4 1.8t, had a remap, fitted a new K&N filter, it goes like a good one, only car to come near it off the lights was a renault clio williams thing, but it lost, and sounded like a nagging little dog hitting the rev limiter, behind me,
    my problem with every day day driving is under normal load, not hard acceleration, I hit a misfire at around 2k revs every gear except 5th, and sometimes under heavy acceleration I go from first to second, hit 58mph go into third and it feels like the turbo has stalled and a lack of power, then put it in fourth and id goes like a rocket again??? any ideas please? engine is only 4 years old 30k miles covered.

    sounds a bit like an air leak
