I spent 3 months trying to solve a powerloss issue, car idled perfectly and revved to limit but lacked zip at
at 3000rpm to 5000rpm, tried ecu reset and seemed slightly better but not 100%..
I discounted the Maf because it showed no faults on diagnostics and also problem only started after a cam belt change.
I suspected cat so replaced with silenced decat, no difference, last resort bit the bullet and forked out for a
new Bosch maf, problem solved the power is back including the surge at 3000rpm.
But it also feels much more lively in all gears, i didn't realise just how bad the old maf was, like a different car..
I tested by unplugging and taking for a vigourous drive (did cut out at idle as expected) but drove without
holding back so i thought i give the maf a go, so glad i did the beast is back better than ever (owned it 4 years).
