WOW....thanks

Well..... it took months to accumulate and receive all of the parts (listed below in my signature).... they are now finally installed.....first run was today.....dry but cool....and.....all I can say is wow.....this car finally performs as good as it looks....what a major improvement in power....going to have to leave the "nannies" on until I feel familiar with my car's reactions to this new power upgrade...

I am so happy with the end result of my upgrades...... and it would never have happened without the information I processed from reading the technical discussions of the members of this Sky Forum...thanks everyone for talking.........pics from Elff were a godsend.....thanks again

keep talking!!!

MMike you need a Redline to understand.

You can always fix codes.

The first step to dealing with error codes is to ignore them for as long as possible.

There are a boat load of threads about stuff like this. When you start throwing codes just do a search on that number, I'm sure there has been more than enough discussion of the issue over the years. That's probably a boost leak.

Harry,

Do you have the 2bar or 3bar sensors?
improper connections on the 3bar sensors have caused limp mode.
Another possibility is that you have a boost leak. Did you blow off a clamp?

Check all the clamps. A failed or loose clamp can cause inconsistent readings and issues. Back in the early days there was a lot of discussion about replacing the factory hose clamps with T clamps. Many of the old timers have done this to eliminate this as an issue.

Check your intercooler for any cracking. There is a known issue that has resulted in cracking of the IC can on the output side. Its a vertical crack that is nearly impossible to see without pulling off the plastic shrouds. It can be heard as a sucking /blowing sound when the car is started and calibrating for the first few seconds. Again, this will give you inconsistent pressure readings which can cause your symptoms.

Take a look at the air cleaner element to make sure its not dirty and is properly seated.

Verify that your MAF sensor mounting point is not cracked and is solid.

If you have spare time, get some MAF cleaner and clean the MAF more to eliminate this as an issue.

Check for sensor problems as mentioned above.

If all else fails, throw and LS in there and be happy
