Hi all wondering if anyone can shed any light,
The 'R was working absolutely fine a month ago no issues at all, MOT ran out so basically its been sat for a month since,thought on the last day of my holidays I would start it warm the cockles up a bit and noticed it sounded like an impreza !!! She drives fine but doesnt hit max boost, boost comes on really slow now, I'm hoping somethings maybe simple as where its been sat in the cold???!! Unfortunately I'm working away now from tommorow so cant check anything but any advice would be greatly appreciated

Masny thanks
Daz

Nearly all of my pulsars have had this happen after a layup.

Water is common to get into there mate, doesn't help with the bonnet vents and depending how the car is parked, hopefully it's up and running soon Smile
