    Car has gone into limp mode. Few weeks back I put a tuning box on it. Car hasn't been right since. It will literally stop accelerating then jolt back into accelerating. So earlier I took it off. And 5 mins later limp mode.

    Yesterday it did do a limp mode effect, but without the EML coming on. Once restarted it was fine.

    RAC on their way. Hoping the box has just buggered something simple up. And it's a case of clearing the code.

    If it's all a coincidence and it isn't the box. I'm praying it isn't the turbo or MAF.

    Opinions?
