    So the S3's poorly and i aint happy, lol.

    Ive got about 1.5k worth of parts sat in the garage that are cant fit as i still need other items to finish it off and it's really starting todo my head in because eveything seems tobe falling apart on the car and i cant really do anything :(.

    Anyway, to top this off the cars been playing up today.

    Fired her up this morning and set off down the street, straight car was off, hard to explain but it felt lumpy, wasnt miss firing or anything just felt like it was all over the place, came upto a junction, pulled out revving the car into the 2k rev range and it felt like it was been choked/pulled back, let off the revs to 1k rev range and car felt lumpy. After about 2mins it was fine.
    On the way home tonight the car was running fine, been in it about 15mins so was warmed up, went to give it abit of revs, went into about 3k rev range and the same thing happened again, let off the revs, revved it again and all was fine!

    Anyway sorry for the essay, lol :), but anyone any ideas?

    Also it aint the fuel filter, its only 6 months old. I'm thinking MAF or coilpacks.

    Tbh it could be the maf, ive had a feeling for a while its been dying, also when idling the revs flutter a few rpm if you get me, you can see the needle flickering, which shouldnt really happen should it, should be solid, i dont think ive got any boost leaks, had a good old do over in the engine the other month removing pipes etc.
