    Default Hi all, New from Brisvegas

    Hi all,

    New to the site, not new to forums.
    Recently purchased an 06 MPS 6 and love it.
    Stock as they come but love the fact i have a quiet car after having a SS commodore ute with 3" quad exhaust that shook the neighbors house lol :P

    Been doing a little research into the hesitation on the MPS's and seem to have found it to be the wastegate solenoid, so am going to have a look at it and test it.

    Does anyone know how much a new one is by any chance?

    Anyway am looking forward to hopefully one day going for a drive with the club and meeting some of you guys/girls :P

    Cheers
    Troy

    Lol thanks for the warm welcome :P

    Won't be able to make it on the drive coming up, but will def try to make it to one this year, I work nights so it can make it hard to get to these sort of things.

    Very happy with the car, have only had it for about 4 weeks, once i fix the hesitation prob, give it a service (dealer has lied numerous times) and should be good to go

    A flashtune from Chiptorque should sort out that hesitation problem (and give you a good increase in power too)

    2XS, I wish the Chiptorque tune fixed my hesitation ;-(

    Welcome Troy! I love my 6 MPS (and it's a velocity red one as well), enjoy.
