Went on a long run down to my parents yesterday. On the way (very humid) it was boosting at 1.1 bar. Quick car. Went out later that night and it was boosting to 1.5 bar boost. And very very very quick. Today on the way back up it was still boosting at 1.5bar (not as hot and humid as yesterday)
1.)I cant believe the weather makes such a huge difference?
2.)What hp/lbft would a carly be putting out at these boost figures?
3.)watching an astra coupe turbo rapidly get smaller in the mirror is fun. I kept having to slow down to do it again.
4.)I think I can smell my pistons melting.......

Fun as it is, such a sudden, big, difference probably indicates that there's something amiss, Paul . My money would be on a faulty APC solenoid- I had similar symptoms on my last 9000. The difficulty will be that the ECU may not be able to back off boost when knock occurs.
