Default Tommy...any more info on your new WGA?

Been wondering how your WGA is doing...have you had it to the track or dyno to verify results? Are you still boosting higher or has the ECU started pulling back the boost like it does on other mods? Has your supplier released a price yet?

With S2 being held up for another X-months your WGA may be the hot-ticket to purchase for us gear-heads if we could get some verified results [:I]

Thanks, Deen

Tommy -

This definitely sounds like a Secondary Ignition Problem (plugs,wires,coil pack).It will happen more when the car is under load, such as going up a hill, getting into the throttle, etc.
I had a car do this several years ago after putting new wires on it.it turned out that one of the new wires was DOA, but it drove me nuts.This kind of thing can also cause problems with your Cat. by dumping unburned, and very very hot fuel into your exhaust.On the car I mentioned, it got to where the exhaust manifold was glowing cherry red and clogged the cat from melting it.

Whoa, not good. Sorry to hear of your problems. We will wait and give you a chance to get it sorted out.

Those type of problems (electrical/fuel)can be real mind bogglers[:0]
