Ok guys, I need a bit of help with an issue with my MX6 2.2T
The car is appearing to (randomly and inconsistantly) be hitting some kind of fuel/ignition cut.
No apparent boost/vacuum leaks
VAF has been removed and cleaned, all "appears" to be in fine working order
Car is not overboosting (only 7-8psi)
Happens at all rev ranges, but moreso on light throttle taking off, or after a quick accel, then back off, hit the throttle again and it hits a wall for 1-2 seconds
Fresh plugs, fuel, and filters went into the car today.
Throttle body was cleaned ... still happens
Idles like a PIG! .... accessing the Idle screw on the VAF does Nothing to the idle.
Also, check for massive intake manifold leaks by spraying fuel ijector cleaner around gaskets. I know you mentioned that there are no OBVIOUS leaks but what about those you cannot see/hear?
My MX hit "the wall" with less than 12 psi boost. With a reprogrammed chip, this no longer happens, although I believe my new "wall" is a restrictive exhaust.
