  1. Hello boys I'm you but have read so much I feel like I know you all. Hoping you SMARTYgeniuses can offer some thoughts! My main question is whether or not a buried code can maintain limp mode. A brief history goes like bought the car with 70 thousand easy k's then an immediate remap by Eddie. Routine oil changes and at around 90 periodic limp mode started that was reset with a rest /ignition off. 100 k now on clock. Numbers1 and 2 (mainly #2)injectors leaked a bit then later a fair bit car began to smoke and grossly underperform, then an EGR cleaning then ran like a race car for 3 weeks then gagged for good, smoke and choked. Into shop for the following: 1. Egr out with blocking plate and emulator in; 2. Complete audit of all intake air hoses, intercooler, Turbo, connections, air filter, muffler, no leaks or obstructions; 3. Oil can with lots of ventilation added; 4. Many battery disconnections for limp reset; 5. Number one and two injectors (leakers) out and cleaned with good spray pattern number three is soundly stuck but was not leaking. I listen with the stethoscope and all sounds are uniform at the site of the injectors, new fire rings, no leaks; 6. Fuel filter change the old one was perfectly good; 7. No codes, at least ones that my reader would pick up, have ever been thrown; 8. Clutch actuator is properly adjusted and lubricated. Shifts and starts smooth and crisp. The car now fires right up, idles nicely, no smoke, no hesitation, works great but is in enduring limp mode with maximum RPMs 3250. Also, manifold pressure seems to peak at 189 irrespective of blow-off valve adjustment. I did hear Tolson say a limp condition would cause the ECM to limit fuel so maybe in that condition it cannot generate enough turbo spin to develop full pressure? I am wondering if the manifold pressure sensor ever goes haywire, if the injectors could be faulty or if it is a software problem which brings me back to whether or not I should spring to have the codes cleared (my code reader will not do it) or keep digging into the hardware. I have a whole parts car in good shape so parts are not a problem. I guess the second question is do we know of anyone who has a STAR reader on Vancouver Island? I would go to Eddie Lai in a heartbeat but resist temptation to go to the Steelership. Here is the catch can. I really do appreciate in advance any bits of wisdom you could offer and applaud you all for your ingenuity and resourcefulness. You guys crack me right up. thanks boys!
