vr6 sluggishness
« on: 18 August 2009, 12:40 »
Just bought a vr6 and it feels ok but i think its underperforming, any idea what might cause this, so far ive searched and found possible things to be: Split vacuum hose or a dodgey MAF . If it is the MAF how do i know ? and how much to repair/replace??
Thanks
