when a car is 20 odd years old nothing is unheard of as ross said check everything fuel related unless you have a exhuast leak etc...

im going to check the fuel rail and the lines this weekend there is a small blowout in the middle section of the exhaust so could be either.any ideas where i can get a full exhaust system for a decent price?

im used to the metro gti's and vvcs and they were much much worse than the ssgti
