touchy

hi guys...


just need to know if anyone else has experienced this.

Last week, on a highway, i gave the girl a bit of a squirt. in maual moe, toped off first gear and putit to normal mode.
slowed down at the next lights and it started idling really badly, even when revving,... idling badly, .. i couldnt pin it, .. felt like engine flod idling mixed with a misfiring idle.

took a good few kilometers and a few more lights to sort out, then went back to normal.
intermittant slight bad idle still occours.
I've booked it in for wednesday, but .. any idea what is happening?
I want to start modding, but want to have it in top condition before voidign the warranty.


on cold starts sometimes a slight ticking noise from near the turbo.

:(

help

Re: touchy

Could be the valve springs. What you describe is typical of this problem.
