Re: AUIII XR8 Problem

Says it is hard to start, almost stalls on takeoff, amoungst other stuff. Anyone come across this ? Reset computer ? Ford won't cover it because it isn't stock or something.
Hangon, your saying that he took it to Tickford now Ford Performance Workshop in Cambelfield. Well your in for a suprise as Tickford/FPV have and still does only new vehicles. Sounds like the exhaust shop or where ever he got it done must of done a bodgy job.
