2.0TS GTV Power

My 2.0TS feels low on power, and always has since I picked it up last September.

The engine has had the following work in the last few months:

Top end rebuilt - new valve seals, new variator
Cambelts replaced
New Piston Rings
K&N Replacement Air Filter cleaned

The work was done due to excessive oil burning.

The car just doesn't seem to pull as well as I would expect. Having driven a P1 2.o ts recently I noticed a substantial difference in power.

Any ideas?

MAF, possibly - try disconnecting it and see how it feels.

Could be a blocked CAT as well...or many other things!

Could even be timing out a little which would cause a power loss..
