A diagnostics for a IS200 will tell u nothing, what reading did u get from the emmissions were they very high?

oodles more torque in a mini cooper S! you might find the power delivery a bit different in the Altezza!

I am still with my theory on theres something wrong with somewhere in the exhaust system, either cat or lamba sensor its what goes into the cat, because u have a power problem taking off.……

Because I don’t think u would be getting wrong reading in emissions from an maf sensor (air flow meter)

Mine failed on emissions EV and I only changed the MAF and had the throttle body cleaned and it passed??

in all fairness my old altezza had the maf changed and the induction kit, i ended up having to change the exhaust and all to get the emmissions right. where did you buy the car kel?

If the reading from the MAF is wrong the ECU can be over fueling which will cause you to fail...
