Hey Guys, i noticed recently (even though its been going on the last month or so) that my EB XR6 has had a drop in power, its not been gradual its just like all of a sudden 15-30Kw's have just gone missing, i've havent started using different fuel and my oil is still relatively full so what could it be you guys? any help is vastly appreciated
