Finally got a chance to test it out for a nice ride


Works good untill around 3k RPM range then it wont accelrate well
if i hold the throttle down it will make a burning smell and eventually smoke :eek:
(smoke comes in only through vents)
boost gauge shows a consistant measure
its hard to get it above 4k without worrying about damaging something

works fine if you drive elderlyish

any thoughts ?

Clutch is easy to rule out - if it's slipping, the revs'll rise without the road speed doing so. Doesn't sound from the original post that that's what's happening...
