Any1 who can help please do so. When i start the beast, the RPM goes upto 1500 as normal then decreases to 750 as per normal but instantly drops to 0 RPM and car cuts out. Any1 no what this could be? even my mechanic is stumped.
Turns out my airflow metre was fried. ($240 piece of plastic) Was told the cause may have been because of the air pod and long country driving. Have been advised to put the factory airbox back on unless car is used for high performance or wishing to gain maximum performance. After mounting a front cooler on, this should provide sufficient cool air to engine and turbine for every day driving.

Check the water coolant thermostat. If it is stuck in the "open" position you are heating up all the water in the coolant system and this will take time. The thermostat keeps the water in the engine until warmed up to almost normal running temperature, only then does it allow the coolant to enter the radiator.
If the car also uses a heap of fuel,it may be the auto choke is stuck on.It may also be other things but thats a good place to start.Get it fixed because you will not be doing the transmission any favours by having it rev that high.It is NOT normal.Idle should be around 750 rpm. I suggest a different workshop.Hope this helps
