Re: #Highroller my 95 blueird

well we changed all the fluids and filters today, check all the hoses to the turbo, and check for blow by on the up tubes..........still have he same issue, bus takes for every to get up to speed but wont go past 45-50 unless it's down hill.......when I bought it she drove fine (56 top speed) now this, but I have only but 50 miles at best since I bought her............motor runs and sounds good, she is just slow as hell......I guess we are off to the shop next

if you had a injector issue, you would see some white blue smoke, (mine is doing that going to change out all injectors), yours sounds like it could be a turbo problem, i would get a boost gauge , i have a scangauge that shows boost, and everything else including engine codes, good investment to have,
