FN2 loss of acceleration & jerky
Had ongoing issues for a while with my 07 FN2.
Doesn't feel as responsive, jerks sometimes when changing gears, bottom end power feels weaker. Feel like somethings holding the car back.
This what I've done:
Had a dodgy custom made intake that was filthy - replaced this with HKS RSK
New fuel filter
New o2 sensor
Had the front two brake calipers refurbed with the new piston kits - does feel better but not 100% convinced they are totally sorted. If they are catching still I don't think it would be enough to cause this feeling in the car.
Anything else that could sort this?
Car was fully service a few days ago and I fitted the HKS RSK yesterday. Could the car take time to adjust to the new intake? Or should it instantly feel better? Few people advised the in take was causing the issue and when I was installing RSK I noticed the rubber intake pipe had a split in it so this wouldn't have helped either.
I'm now thinking along the lines of dirty fuel injector and/or the fuel pump being done in?
Thanks in advance
