Hi all,

Hope you do have an answer.

I own the 2.2 and when I put my foot down from 2nd gear onwards, the revs shoots up and then drops and then goes back up.

Do you know why this is the case? Is this a turbo lag?

Could sound like the clutch on it's way out...
That would certainly be my initial thinking. When you say the revs go back up the second time do they climb back up normally? As in you press the accelerator, they shoot up, drop down, then increase as though the acceleration is now happening? If so then this is symptomatic of the clutch being on its way out.
