Hi All,
I took my car for a blast down the motorway yesterday and when I hit a certain speed the car lost power and the mil light came on.
this has happened a couple of times now,
I get P0244 turbo/supercharger wastegate solenoid range/performance.
does anyone have an idea what's causing it ?
could it be the fact I am running 3 inch turbo back cat less system without a map ?

cheers

Boost solenoid issues maybe? If so easy fix. Carb cleaner works.

well I fixed my overboost problem chaps .
I bought a 1st decat pipe from ebay and fitted the 2nd cat back on.
I have noticed a little bit of a difference in low down power but at least she is back up to
where she should be lol

I also removed the bailey`s dv and refitted original recirc valv , I noticed straight away that the gear change/foot down is a lot smoother

My car ran like that for years no overboost or solenoid problems. I'd be wary of that solenoid. Overboost will kill your engine. How much would that cost you?

you need a remap on the hawk 2.5 if you take the cats out, or on full throttle you get fuel cut due to high boost pressure, had the same problem with my old hawk with a 3" decat exhaust and no map, once it was mapped it stopped
