Couple problems...
« on: 21:36, Tue 20 March 2012 »
Firstly hello, im new here!  Just bought a 5 gt turbo phase 2.   Its standard apart from a bleed valve under bonnet and i believe the carbs had bigger jets or something to cope with the upped boost.  Anyway, i want the car standard so have screwed the bleed valve right down, now will the car over fuel if the carbs got bigger jets, and now running standard boost?  If so is this dangerous?  Secondly, on full boost the engine suddenly cuts, jerks, for a split second.  Any idea whats causing this?  Im gonna be changing the oil and filters and plugs soon to cancel out that as a source.  Any help would be great, thanks, Sam

If you want the car returned to standard then it's best to just bin the bleed valve and return the carb jets to there standard size.

Have a good read through the DIY section, there is some good information in there about carbs and fuelling.

Hi, ok will have a read now....  Any idea why it may be jerking, stalling the engine on full boost?
