too much turbo?

Hello, new to the board, came here probably a year ago, my how you've grown.

95 9000 CSE 2.3T auto. Gently put my foot down thing flies! But boot it? almost takes off, then the turbo guage flies over further than red then the car cuts out almost putting me through the windscreen. If i take my foot off the accelerator things return to normal, but if i don't do it quick enough the turbo needle swings wildly and the car just "bucks". I,ve checked all the hoses all seems ok but thats the limit of my skill. Anyone help me with what to look at please?

Re: too much turbo?

check hoses again, from apc to turbo especially, then check the apc, (soleniod on top of the rad), try squirting some carb cleaner into the apc soleniod inlet outlets. i had the same symptoms, and this cured it.

all the best

Re: too much turbo?

It sounds like the old overboost protection. For whatever reason its bossting too much and needs taming and set just before the point it cuts the fuel supply.
