    Pulled on to a stretch of dual carriageway earlier and accelerated full throttle from near standing through 1st, 2nd and 3rd but the car felt sluggish.
    Brought up the Rs monitor and used full throttle again coming off of a roundabout back on to dual carriageway and rs monitor is only showing 3/4 of max torque being used and 150bhp.
    Went out again a bit later and exactly the same thing happening, engine temperature is fine, no warning lights or messages and all fluids are topped up.
    Any ideas why it could be limiting power?

    Low quality fuel or the car not being properly warmed up?

    Fuel is bp ultimate and has been run on that since we bought it, car is always warmed up fully before any more than half throttle.

    I will have a look in the morning for anything blocking it, going to see if anywhere is open tomorrow to run diagnostics to check if anything is flagged up

    No blockage in the air intake, filter doesn' look bad but I might change it anyway (good excuse to get the engine dynamics intake pipe and k&n panel filter).

    The readings from rs monitor:
    Boost 0.5bar
    Oil temp 98c
    Edc oil 39c
    Clutch 60c
    Inlet temp 25c
    Air temp 11c
    Torque 190nm (max at WOT)
    Power 150hp (max at WOT)

    Im thinking maybe boost leak or duff actuator?

    Going to have to get it booked in to Renault.

    Filled it up on the way to my mates with bp ultimate, pulled fine once then started holding back. Got it plugged in and cleared all the codes and went for a drive. Twice it pulled to the redline with full boost and power and then went back to how it was running before.
    Plugged it back in and one code had reappeared (df1012 something to do with the injection system messages to the cc/sl system).
    We checked all the hoses etc and built the boost up with launch control while my mate was looking under the bonnet and there's no sign of any boost leaks.

    Matt, dunno if you’re interested but there was a guy selling the brand new ED intake pipe for half price on Facebook if you wanted me to get in touch with him?

    Could potentially be someone mapped the car before but Renault looked at all the maps and put some up to date ones in surely they would have have found signs of mapping
