And i think i got the exhaust tight when i changed the downpipe, or else i would have heard it. The lambda sensor has been changed as well, so that should be ok.


Everything after the AFM needs to be sealed (and really everything after the air filter so you're not sucking dirt and debris into the engine) or you'll have issues like this.

But it still dont like boost over 0,7 / 16 in AFR

Reset the ECU (pull the EFI fuse or disconnect the battery for a couple minutes) and see how it does, it'll probably have to relearn now that things are correct.

How many miles do you have on your car?

Re: Fuel Cut disable/delete??? ST185

Its now on 137 000km. Oil change every 5000km, with filter every 10 000km. So the engine should be very healthy!
I am the third owner of this car :)

Btw, i was Just out testing after resetting the ecu.
It is much better!! The AFR is still a little high thow. 10 ish on third gear, and down to 9 on fourth gear.
I will purchase some silicone Intake hoses, and test more when i have that. :)
Does it make any difference if it's running on 95octane or 98octane?

Sounds like you have a damn nice car then! My car has 239K miles so every time I would replace a hose or anything I would find another cracked or something so I just replaced everything hose related so I didn't have to worry about it.

I have been running 88 octane non-ethanol with Lucas octane boost and I get decent gas mileage and the car seems so run good enough. In Utah we are a higher elevation so 91 is our premium but I cant find 91 non-ethanol.

(NOTE: European octane rating is different than US. 98 Europe is roughly 91-92 US. 95 would be similar to US 89)

i have now fixed the intake hose, replaced it with silicone hose. pretty sure everything is tight now.
But the problem is still there... it still doesn't like boost over 0,7bar ish.
not sure what to do next... have other peolpe experienced this?

Anytime I repair anything, I reset the ECU by removing power for a few minutes to clear any bad habits it may have learned before proceeding. Hopefully that's all it is for you.

i have tried this several times... unfortunately this does not do the charm for me :/
I have notised that the car is using a little bit oil. could that have anything to do with it?

Derp, I just noticed I already suggested that to you, sorry about that. Is it just struggling to build more boost than that or is it suddenly cutting power? Does the CEL work and are there any codes?
