Bugger it's back...the italian tune up worked last time...
I should probably take it in for it's service as it's 5k overdue, i'm wondering if it's the engine experiencing lean tip in due to a clogged fuel filter, and hence dumping the boost. As it's only under heavy load...if i take it round to 3k rpm in 3rd and keep climbing the gears at that rate it's fine.and holds it all the way up. It's only if your below 2.5 and put the engine under a huge load it dumps the boost climbs again, dumps and climbs.
anyway, only other odd things are the 'step change' you get at 1800rpm, since it had a new head and new EGR under warranty 12 months ago, and thats about it.
Annoying thing is i'm off on my hols on Saturday and it's got to make a journey from Leicester to Manchester possibly on the bank holiday monday before i can get it serviced.
