I've got a chipped 2ctq20v avant with the exact same problems as
described by Shawn. I personally have never even seen the car reach
1.7 or above. The upgrade is an IA Stage 3 that was done in 1998.
When I talked to Ned from IA he suggested that the hose that runs
behind the heat shield by the wastegate could have burned through and
that I replace it. Of course, not that I've done this yet to see if
it makes any difference. However, I did notice that there is a new
O2 sensor that was patched in (I just bought this car 6 weeks
ago)...so - as with Shawn's example I am now wondering if this could
be the problem, or part of the problem as well. Any help for both
Shawn and now me would be great.
