    When you change gear you will hear a fluttering noise. This indicates that its buggered!

    I think ive jinxed myself by posting this post./ubbthreads/images/graemlins/froggie_red.gif

    I was driving on the M4 accelerated hard at about 80mph and heared a sort of fluttering/clicking noise that soon cleared. When it cleared it seemed to have more boost, soon after this changed to less boost.

    Is this a sign i need a Forge DV upgrade?

    why not Forge? I thought these were supposed to be very good.

    How do they differ from AMD?

    Thanx
