If you're lacking power in the top end range, I would suggest starvation..?

ie clogged injectors, fuel filter, you checked spark plugs, leads? also maybe the coil is on the way out? I doubt it at 85,000 but who knows. Also your air filter, and throttle body?


Just some things to check.


Cheers

Also might be worthwhile reseting the ECU... maybe it learnt something bad, or who knows what.. something free and easy to do.. just in case.

Cheers
