Just went out for a drive to test my office coilovers and after it warmed up i went to floor it. Put foot ll the way down and it was either misfire or holding back at the above revs, it was ok at three quarters throttle but no full. Someone please help as im off to the ring next month.

First thing to check would be fueling and ignition and then you can try and get a idea of where to look. Its sounds like a the knock sensors are picking up some noise and reducing the power to protect itself.

if its over fueling would this make sounds that the knock sensor's could hear? also is there a test i could do on them and where are they on the engine. did the old afm dry joint trick today and put new solder on it but still the same.

If the knock sensors pick up excess engine noise or det they will retard the ignition and chuck a load of fuel in which gives a flatspot. I`v seen it a few times. Somtimes its faulty knock sensors or somtimes its other things! Not easy to say without seeing it but the knock sensors can be faulty and not give out a fault code.

Knock sensors are quite expensive from nissan. I think they are somthing like £130 + vat !!

If you want to bring it down and run it on the dyno we can check it over and try and fix it before you go. Better to be safe than sorry as the last thing you want to do is break it over there!
