    Hi pal, seems to be cutting fuel under acceleration and has a dodgy idle. Ordered new fuel filter first and going to check coil packs after xmas. Plugs were fine. Then from there fuel pump and CAS.

    Yeah seems like a good place to start. Rewarding cars though, when you get there

    The dodgy idle could be related to the AAC valve - mine was full of mess so I cleaned it out which did improve things a bit although not completely. Next port of call is the MAF.

    Car is stock. Changed fuel filter which helped a bit. Which makes me think it's fuel pump. CAS is fine so not that. Going to check for boost leaks when I have a free weekend. Then probably fit a Walbro as I would upgrade to one anyway.

    when you do a boost leak test, a simple "look" over the pipes will not suffice you need to do a proper pressure test
