If you have a great memory, you may remember this Bentley GT Speed from a while back. We treated it with an exhaust setup over utilizing a custom secondary cat delete and X pipe. From there we topped it off with an EVOMSit ECU remap. Well, apparently all that extra power didn’t come without a price, as 6 months later it returned with boost pressure faults in the ECU. P0234 would set and put the Bentley into limp, or failsafe mode. We quickly suspected we were dealing with a Bentley GT Speed Turbo Failure.

Direct Injection Problems are becoming rapidly more prevalent as more new cars are turning to this new technology in order to reach better emissions, fuel efficiency, and more performance. This method of fuel injection precisely delivers fuel directly into the cylinder just before the moment of combustion. The potential loss that was once a factor with “on valve” or “intake manifold” injections is greatly negated with direct injection. With all the benefits of direct injection, its easy to see why this technology will soon become the standard delivery method for internal combustion vehicles. There is; however, a dark side to this wonderful, new technology. (to learn more about direct injection, check out here)
