    Help 02 F-12X

    History...2002 F-12x 87 hours.. flushed,CRC'ed,ran with fuel stabilizer..in showroom condition.
    I can cruise up to 5200 RPM over that @ wide open the fuel light comes on and it starts to shut down

    like your on and off the power. I have to turn it off restart and stay under 5200. I thought it was bad fuel and drained the tank.
    2 times out of 5 it ran wide open last time no top end? The dealer I got it from said they can't find problem.
    Any ideas or do I need to go to Honda this has been going on for a year now?
    Update as of today I got 6000 rpm yesterday but it shut down if I go max power
    Thanks

    My guess is you have an issue with the boost going to high. Either a wastegate not opening up all the way or a bad wgs. or a clogged or leaking hose going to one of these. But this is just a guess.

    Here is a pic of the wastegate linkage... Needs to move freely and lubed often.

    Just buy a 15X and add Superjims kit to it and you are faster the rougher it gets.
    It will be interesting to see if Nitro is going to do a 15X kit...
