    Default Limp Mode at high revs!!

    Hey guys this problem is still bugging me!

    I am TMS stage 2 and the car basically goes into limp mode when full throttle in 4th or 5th gear high in the rev range eg(4k-6k).

    I have replaced the following already.

    BCS
    Spark plugs
    Coil pack

    Now the car runs fine when the MAF sensor is unplugged so im thinking that it may be causing the issue.

    IS THERE ANYONE IN GLASGOW AREA WHO WOULD SWAP ME A MAF SENSOR FOR 2MINS SO I COULD SEE IF THIS IS MY PROBLEM? AS IT WOULD SAVE ME SPENDING OVER £130 IF THIS ISNT THE FAULT.


    any advice or help would be much appreciated.

    You made sure the waste gate arm is not hitting the precat V clamp. Mine went into limp mode at high revs due to this.

    Pretty sure it's not that as I went and bought a new clamp (£48!) and the car doesn't do it when the MAF sensor is unplugged?

    Yer that's because it won't sens the air / flow in the system.
    A garage fitted my new clamp and ****** it up.

    I just went out and double checked it there and is on fine... The spring clamp part is around the back and away from the wastegate so don't think that's the issue...

    Indeed it is and that is what I just had cured. As far as I could grasp it is the map, I just had a new remap put on and it works so well! No more code and limp mode
