have a listen on the pipework with a screwdriver or similar - you should hear a noise if there is a leak . you need to make sure nothing is going through the meter if not using water..dont rush it - could just be a small leak - make cup of tea , read meter , read newspaper ,eat biscuits ,  check meter ...

I was thinking about a PCV delete and some searching on here led me to believe the latest revision factory PCV is a much better idea unless you have a stupid amount of HP. Is that right?

This is the result of taking power from the dark side:

I recently went to 2+ from stage 1 with Unicorn Motor Developments and am massively impressed with the torque in mid range now available. Turns out my stage 1 map was rubbish and Rick sorted me out with a great result. I asked for a modest map (dont want anything broken) an

Had a browse on eBay and found someone selling brand new soundproofing from Germany. Gonna probably wait until that comes before removing the existing one. £51.
