Default WHAT the F#$# ?!?!?!

i've got a problem and seems to be related to the feul system.

I was doing 200km/h on the highway at full throttle...air fuel gauge was reading rich, almost all bars to the right. then i heard a loud THUD! or POP/THUD sound! i got a little apprehensive so i let off the gas and stayed at 100 km/h. before that i used to idle VERY rich, now I am idling only 2 bars on the rich side. the main concern i have is when i am driving: I drive hard all the way to around 4-5000 rpm and the engine cuts off...like it gets choked or something. I am running a lot less richer and the car has trouble handling full throttle: it cuts out.

My problem has to be fuel related because i bought a brand new BOV, and sealed any possible leaks exhaust or charge pipe. I am thinking it could be the pump starting to give OR maybe the injectors are being overloaded.

thanks,
chris

uh a pop/thud sound is usually threads being stripped from to much pressure I think your problem is either going to be a blown fuel pump, or something worse in the motor itself.

if my fuel pump is blown, would i still be able to hit full throttle? it just seems that whenever the load on the engine increases the car freaks out and shuts off.

do a compression test. it might have stripped a headbolt out of hte head. even go and retighten the headbolts abd try again. remember to follow the pattern.

Theres an order to tighten down the head bolts, don't have a user manual or I would say. I am pretty sure you start outward and move inwards or something like that.
