Hi everyone!

A friend of mine has a problem - I told her I knew just the right people to
ask!  So, here it is; she has a '98 new beetle with a TDI - no, that's not
the problem, when you drive the car and shift, there's no power in the new
gear.  The car doesn't want to accelerate.  It feels down on power the whole
time - just like there's no boost.  She had it checked-out at the dealer and
they say it's fine.  No check engine light comes on.  I have no idea what
the computers can diagnose either.  My only guess is a clogged cat or the
wastegate spring failed.  Any ideas?

thanks, Jon
