    cant be ***** with all this greef n e more. No error code.. boosting but now power still.. new maf.. and n 75 still does it!

    its gotta be the turbo (I HAVE JUST REPLACED)

    i have spent nearly 3k on repairs on this car and it still annoys me.

    If it's boosting but there's no power then it's not going to be the turbo!

    Possibly fuelling or boost leak or it's running in limp mode because a sensor it goosed. You could have fried a lambda or EGT sensor if your new turbo has been causing the car to run too lean due to increased boost, etc.

    If you cant afford the remap for it at the mo think how much anything for a skyline would be if it went wrong.

    I think we all have these problems , i have had mostly problems ever since i bought the car 5 years ago , everytime you fix it /mod it something will break for sure . But at least the engine wont blow up unlike skylines scoobs etc

    I think I could get the biggest collection of violins together to play my sad symphony. I have spent 3 times what I bought the car 2 years ago keeping it going (ok, the occasional mod in there now and again ;-) ).

    Don't be thinking Audi's don't break. There have been a few engine blows in the 2.7T world over the last year or two.

    Mostly cambelts going, but there have been a number of cases of cam wear (mainly RS4's) which result in valve strike.

    Yeah.. you'll be chasing faults forever on a skyline and paying much more for the priviledge as my mate found out.. he's got a Fiat Coupe 20V Turbo now which is faster and to date has had no problems!

    It'll come good Alpine mate, try not to get too annoyed with it. With some talented eyes going over things you may fin it something quite simple to rectify matters
