Could try that 10k boost stuff. Haven't used it myself but apparently it's really good at cleaning out the whole exhaust system.

Have a look at the web-site anyway.

cheers dan,

droped the car off at the garage last night when i explained to the mechanic every thing it was doing, straight away he said it might be a cam shaft sensor this would  also  explain why the rev limiter comes in at 4500 instead of 6500.

so im waiting with fingers crossed!!!
