    Hi Everyone

    When changing
    gear from the top end of 3rd gear to going into 4th, loses power. well that what it feels like[​IMG]. all the way up to aprox 5200rpm then mass boost is delievered.

    do you think it could be the actuator?

    turbo does not have viens and is not smoking or rattling so not turbo?

    Any fault codes? if the actuator was faulty you would most likely have all the boost and the fault would affect all gears... very much doubt its the issue...

    don't think its clutch as feels more like loss of boost. There are no fault codes coming either.
