    Was wondering why my car's turbo shuts its self off at 120mph, boost overload? what would solve the problem, turning the key off and on again puts it back to normal. Cheers jay.

    more worrying for me is that you turn the key off and on again at that speed - that takes real b*lls.

    Is it a 1.8T?
    N75 valve? Sticky actuator?
