diagnosis, clutch????

4th, 5th, 6th gear, when the turbo kicks in on my 1.9 jtd, the revs jump and my speed doesnt. then the revs get "caught" and the car picks up speed.

ok. first thigns first. the car is remapped.

im guessing my clutch is on the way out????

tried idling the car and just letting the clutch up sharp when stationary to see if it would stall or not. It stalls, so im guessing the clutch isnt that bad. is it just caused by the remap????? ie. too much power for the plates to handle?

Just the one plate - it isn't a drag car clutch
Sounds very much like the clutch cover springs are weakening, time to start budgeting for a new one. A standard one shoudl be ok with your remap, although as you are changing it you could investigate an uprated version as they often don`t cost that much more.

A clutch is around £130 and around £300 - £400 ish to fit - all depending on who you use.
