Default TFatC's 99T - The madness continues!

First, sorry, no pics as my cheapskate brother does not have a digital camera. Can't say too much as he paid for and collected the car last night

First reports are very encouraging. It came with a HUGE history file and every MOT certificate. The car had 1200 spent on it not very long ago. The interior is immaculate, new headlining a couple of years ago, a few rust scabs but nothing too serious. Half a tank of petrol

The car is on 4 Ronal alloys with good tyres, and came with 4 Incas with better tyres . My brother drove it home last night, did not break down and hit 90 for a while.

Only problems encountered so far, the tacho is intermittent (suspect a dodgy connection) and here is where I ask for help. The turbo obviously needs setting up as it boosts into the red before the waste gate opens, in effect switching off the turbo! My last 99T 12 years ago did this after I had the head done, but rust killed it before I had a chance to investigate.

So, what is causing this, and how do I put it right? All advice gratefully received.

Must be a good car, my brother has no taste in cars (he is an accountant! ) and drives an Audi S4, admittedly with ABT bits and 320 bhp, and he LIKED my Saab!
