    Hi Guys,

    As the title says, I have a flat spot around 5200rpm in third gear...car is probably going in to be checked next week but I wanted some advise before sending it in...any ideas of what is could be? Anyone have a similar issue? :confused:

    Just a bit of background info: 2 weeks ago I lost almost all power...turned out that the HPFP had gone together with the cam follower and the cam shaft. All that was replaced under warranty...but the flat spot that was evident before still remains. :banghead:

    Thanks in advance :icon_thumright:

    I would try fitting the RS4 fuel pressure valve as that cured mine on the same set up as you.
