Down on power..
I'm a bit down on power. 5th feels like 6th etc. Still quick but definitely not right.
Also, it is stuttering a lot on idle, revs bouncing around the 800rpm mark. And on the overrun when not up to temperature it really does pop and bang a lot.
I *think* my exhaust sounds different. I haven't had a chance to get it over the pit yet as my Mondeo is in the garage at the moment and I'm driving the Alfa, I think my problems are coming from a slight blow in the exhaust system somewhere causing a lack of back-pressure, meaning the cylinders aren't emptying of exhaust gasses properly, less fuel is burnt, less power, and unburnt fuel is getting through and popping in the exhaust..
What do you all think? Sound feasible?
