Basically, I'm travelling in a 30zone in 3rd and the car hates it, its not a major problem but the engine seems as tho its struggling a little........when i drop it in 4th, its fine and sometimes it will coast along in 5th in a 30!

Just wondering what the problem could be, id have thought that a higher gear in at such a speed would have caused the problem but not the case........

I have the XE rev counter problem that sometimes occurs with the conversion and haven't sorted it yet lol So looking at my revs is going to be a little bit of a problem! Nevermind........could be a breathing problem, then again would that happen most of the time if i had a bloke hose or 2 or 3 or 4!?
