    Might sound stupid, but perhaps swop out the sensors woth your friends Disco? Process of elimination.

    And have the cats(dpf's) removed and install mini cats, if needed.

    4 different workshops, 2 primary turbos , set of injectors , cross over valve , boost pipes , vacuum hoses , body off 4 times , intercooler , ECU software change x 3 , intake manifolds and countless man hours spent...….the problem is 1 gasket worth a few bucks.What I now know is that the previous owner had both turbos removed and reconditioned after a primary turbo failure. In this process the secondary turbo was reconditioned but never assembled correctly to turbo shut off valve. The technician failed to insert a gasket between the shut off valve and the turbo. Without this gasket exhaust flow is not fully directed to the primary turbo under 2500RPM and instead bleeds off into exhaust system. So the lack of sufficient exhaust pressure/flow being directed to primary turbo prevented turbo from spooling up to potential, hence lack of power under 2500RPM. New gasket now fitted and vehicle drives like a dream. Live and learn. Thanks for the input guys.

    I haven't kept record of all expenditures and approached the concern a little with my head in the sand, not really wanting to know what the rand value end result was. Also, the previous owner's expenditure is included in my summary. I'm told he spent about 75K before giving up. Myself, perhaps about...… let's leave it as enough.

    On the bright side. At least your vehicle has had a thorough inspection with some new bits.
