  1. Major Power Lose!

    I have no issue replacing the O2 sensor, but the engine check light is not coming on .. so I would like to think all the sensors are fine. However I will take ur advice and if the problem continues .. I'll just sell of the car!!
  2. Hi guys, I having a very annoying problem with my car. As the subject suggests above, I’m having a serious power lose issue every time I rest the ECU or when I tune the car up. Example: 5 days after a full tune up … the car (IS 300) will be working fine (accelerating with relative easy), however within 3 -4 days time … my car begins to strain ( is accelerates like a truck). Possible issues: My engineer check light is not on, however if I perform a diagnostic test, the computer said I need to replace both O2 Sensors. Help need: Guys this issue has been going on for a year .. I’ve reach my limit .. I may sell my baby if this issue continues. Thanks in advance for any advice or resolution.
  3. Mod: Air Intake!

    i ve just fitted the apexi power intake and just like what happened to you maltezza my car has lost power, its really slow going up through the revs , i disconnected the battery for 10 mins and and the connected it then started it up for 5 mins without touching the throttle then turned it off and fired her up again and took it for a test drive and its still the same , have u got yours sorted yet, i see from your thread about your car that they said it might be your carbon pipe but i have got the correct pipe and it still does it . dont know what to do now, let me know what you have done :) just been back out to the car and disconnected the battery for an hour, connected it back up and took it out for a drive, at first it was pretty sluggish , but the more i drove it the better it got, and after an hour of driving the ecu has learned the new filter airflow, its still not perfect but its pretty close so i came home and parked up for an hour went back out for a drive and from cold it drives perfect really responsive but as the temp went to normal it loses a tiny amount of response which im thinking is the heat in the engine bay so im gona look to get a box to fit in there, so to sum up i fitted it and it drove like a pile of ****, left the battery disconnected for an hour to reset the ecu then drove around for an hour and it fixed itself :) So what your're telling me is .. the apexi power intake really works ?? Cuz im a bit confuse now … 1st mAltezza said its crap .. but now your’re say-n it works. One other question … does it improve your torque , and by how much??
  4. Mod: Air Intake!

    Naw... I was thinking about something along the lines of a Apexi Power Intake Air Filter System ( complete kit->> http://www.racinglab.com/appowinairfi.html). Didn't notice any difference with that fitted to my Altezza apart from a lot more noise when you put the foot down , gets a bit annoying after a few weeks. You might gain 2-3 bhp max :o damn.. I guess u saved my sum money then!!

    lol nice one!!!
  15. Hey guys, For about a week now I've been trying out the M mode (Tipronic) on my RS200. At 1st I didn't like it (found it a bit confusing), but now I love it. Reason: 1. Easy to gears down when going around corners. 2. It give u a feeling of more control over your car. 3. And it just plain old fun to use :P. What are your feeling when it comes to Tipronic mode? Love it or hate it?
