Hi everyone,

I'm new to the site - I've had my VT for 2 weeks now and absolutely love it. Not many of them over here in the UK, especially modified ones so I'm turning a lot of heads at the moment. I bought it used from a dealer and the previous owner had done some modifications to it - I can't get a full list from him yet as I'm waiting for his details. So, from what I can see I've got Injen induction kit, Forge BOV, Uprated intercooler (haven't taken a look at make yet) and a Longlife cat back. It sounds awesome, although I'm already getting annoyed with the BOV noise. I'm guessing the owner had the car remapped but have no idea what figures it's putting out at the wheels. I'm getting it booked in for a dyno run soon. Plans for it at the moment are a respray to Ford Stealth Grey, coilovers, Sequence spoiler, front lip, tinted rear lights. Performance wise until I get a proper look at what I've got then I'm going to leave it for the time being.

BUT - I have a question.....The car pulls great from 4th gear onwards but in lower gears it feels really restricted - any ideas? It's really bugging me...

Very nice. Welcome to the fold. If your getting it on a dyno soon just have them look at the numbers and see what's going on. Or get a scanner and check the logs.

Hey, so it did pull up a code the other day - P0039 Turbo/Super Charger Bypass Valve Control Circuit Range/Performance.

Didn't have time to investigate so I just cleared the code and carried on with my life haha.

I spent a good three weeks in England with a college roommate and his wife (they live here in Colorado now) but i loved it. A good chunk of it was a drinking "holiday". We stayed in london for 9 days, on and off, visited her parents in Grimsby (super random) and from there went to York and Lincoln, all the little surrounding areas. We drove around in an old work van that was a friend of friend's. It was a weird vacation (was going through a rough break up), but can't wait to visit again!

I do find it fun to troll the Boy Racers here... Getting rolled up on my a 15 year old Vauxhall Corsa with a coffee can exhaust is fantastic. lol.

Like you were speaking German. Is a Vauxhall Corsa like our Honda Civic? That seems to be the teenage weapon of choice here across the pond.

Of course I did have some kid in a NAV screw with me a while back. I flashed my bald spot and pulled away.

Funnily enough, I'm an american (with a US-Spec VT) living in the UK temporarily, courtesy of Uncle Sam. Yes, a Corsa is the equivalent to the civic here. Except the Civics themselves. They're even worse.

Have you figured out the hesitation yet? I have a 2016 with 1500 miles and having the same issue. it does almost feel like its not getting enough fuel..
