    Ok got a problem sick of it here how it goes the car has full samco pipework which stopped a 5psi limp mode because of F hose , new n75 and everyother senser in the boost intake system, i was running dual piston blow offs but now back to 710s its intermitent and used to boost to 20psi when spiked its on a giac chip and has de-cat full stainless system bmc induction also.

    Done a pressure leak test with no results im getting sick of it now and feel like smashing it up !!!

    Someone please throw some ideas my way thanks

    20psi is a lot of boost for KO3's, have you tried logging the boost actual against requested? how do you know you're producing the pressures you're reporting?

    i'm not an expert but it sounds like it's overboosting and going into limp mode, is the N75 piped correctly? i'm wondering if you have a stuck wastegate also.

    thought for a minute it could be a blocked cat, the S4 system should monitor for such an occurence as per the self study guide in the sticky at the top of the forum and drop into limp mode.

    have you got access to Vag-Com?

    my s4 was going into limp mode intermittently. Turns out it was an EGT Sensor telling the ECU that the exhaust gas tempetature was 1300. The ECU was then running low boost until the sensor gave the correct reading again.

    i think the fan should be on at low speed if the aircon is on. might be worth posting your general location, you could be close to a member with Vag-Com who'd scan it for some beer money
