    Recently my car has been feeling like it has turbo lag (not a turbo though, lol) could this be a vacuum line? also felt like a knocking noise was happening a few times but havent heard it since. Any ideas people?

    When was it last serviced? Does a diagnostic fault code check turn anything up? What fuel are you using?

    Was serviced about 6 weeks ago but recently got a new highflow cat put on it so could it be a leak there??? No Faults when serviced and no lights showing up at the moment. Usinf V-POwer which if memory serves is 98 octane, so the best fuel available at the pumps.

    Think its a leak in my exhaust when they welded it up they missed a spot so that may explain the loss of power. thought it would happen as soon as i got it back but over the 2 weeks maybe a sharp jolt or something cracked a weak point in the weld.

    Get the brake lines replaces mate, also try testing the brakes for any trapped air.

    So the clunking noise could also be the brakes? even if it really only happens when not braking??? i will ask my mechanic to check the brakes for me on Monday :) Thanks.
