Hi Keith, Noticed this was a while back so you probably have a solution by now? The plenums can be troublesome on these but it's always worth checking the 2 VIS motors fitted to the plenum first. Basically they have little plastic cog wheels inside that wear. Lots of good info at http://forums.xpowerforums.com/
