    cant be arsed 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)

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

    will sell it to some 1 that appreciates the work that has been done and willl not try and mug me off with a price. ill just burn it other wise! lol

    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!
