my car is loosing major power at like 5,000 rpms and it is like there is a hesititation its werid... i dont know what i could be but i just installed a boost gauge on my stock corrado and it says im boosting like 11 or 12 psi 14 in 3rd gear sometimes... what is this caused by? isnt stock boost like 7 psi... do you think i need a new head due to "valve float" or what?? the car all around compared to my other corrado just feels slower in general so i think i have a boost leak also.. so he is another question with me "boosting" 14 psi, could this be cuased by the boost leak? thanks to anyone who helps

Re: boost problem please help (9X)

I have had a similar problem with hesitation at high RPM shifts however mine is not consistent. I have never had the problem when the car is properly warmed up to proper operating temp. Also I notice that it hesitates at high RPM shifts when I am under a 1/4 tank of fuel..dunno if there is a fuel pressure problem there or something.............. I am certainly no Corrado tech, just my 2 cents. Letting you know your not alone
I am pretty sure this was covered a few times in here before. Try a search u might get lucky http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
