You very well may have a bad or disconnected map sensor.

Golf mk 4 gti turbo starts up but wont rev past 2000rpm


turbo is malfunctioning the turbo waste gate is not working take it to a shop right away, preferablly tow it so as not to damage the engine, if the exhaust gas's gets near the turbine bearings you will burn up the engine and the turbo cna explode like a hand granade and destrou your enging.

Airbox went Boom!


Sounds like it back fired.
Which fuels are you using?
This may have happened because the engine was too hot for the gas. Be sure to let the engine cool down before switching next time.
As for repairs you will most likely just need an air filter, air box, and maybe as mass air flow sensor.

Sluggish loss of power and popping noises from engine


Clean the distributer cap in the inside, it has water in it thus causing all the noises and the back fire.

Back-fires and cuts off


check the distributor to make sure that the rotor is pointing at the no. 1 cylinder when that cylinder is at top dead center on the compression stroke. It sounds like your distributor rotor is 180 degrees out of time. The engine will run but will do what yours is doing.

318ti M44 acceleration problem


Have someone handy to press the gas pedal for you after the engine has warmed up well; best if driven.

While you listen at the exhaust pipe, have your helper increase the revs slowly and note whether the exhaust note changes to a hiss, instead of the sound of an engine firing.

You may have a decayed catalytic convertor and when they come apart inside, they can clog mufflers and resonators (the second, smaller muffler).

I've had this happen on more than one car and when it happened on a Fiat Strada years ago, since the routing of the system was fairly straight and made of heavier gauge stainless steel, I fired two shots with a .357 magnum into the tailpipe.
Never had another problem with it.
