Charlie is yours not Turbo? Sometimes the turbo version gives similar problems when driven for long periods at below the Turbo "kick-in" speed. When this becomes a problem the turbo will need a turbo "wash" to clear the clag.

Thanks Laidback but I went with the naturally asperated engine. I didn't think I needed the extra ~ 20 hp the turbo would provide and didn't want the complication of a turbo.

Fair Winds,


Between us there was, as I have already said somewhere, the bond of the sea. Besides holding our hearts together through long periods of separation, it had the effect of making us tolerant of each other's yarns -- and even convictions. Heart of Darkness
