    Your video footage is impeccable!

    The contrast control, exposure, sharpness and limiting of flare is really good.

    Mind telling us what it is?

    Freelander II Re: Freelander 2 Turbo? - limp mode issue

    On the Si6, there is definitely a high pressure fuel pump in the tank.

    During cranking the pressure is around 42MPa and then drops to 30MPa when the engine runs.

    Had to replace mine twice.
