If the boost starts dropping off once you get past 4500rpm, then its generally the actuator being pushed open.

Another year, another MOT today.
Clean sheet except for one tyre near to limit advisory :bag:

MOT station is 6 miles from garage I took it to. I have a dashcam installed.
Should I watch how the mechanic drove my car to MOT centre and back????
Or better to remain ignorant?
