      Actually the jumper wire is a very good way to quickly test a suspect compressor. Bypasses all the control modules, relays and pressure sensors. Compressor will either work or not. Period.

      Another thing you can do to end the Fuel quality question once and for all. Put some Shell V-Power 91 in the car. All of our Shell fuel comes from the USA. The Shell refinery is in Anacortes,...

      BTW, do you have a Boost gauge and WB AFR meter? Boost gauge is absolutely essential on these cars or any Turbo car. It can give you immediate feed back of any " hidden " issues on your car.
