Reaped the rewards of a small bit of maintenance

Haven't been happy with my scoobs running the past few months - been down on power and worse on fuel and stuttering and hesitant on boost.

Today a put in new NGK 6s and cleaned MAF and boost solenoid and associated pipework

Result! Car pulling cleanly again and feels back to its old self.

Thankfully nothing else was wrong. Got the plugs on eBay for 12 from a seller who bought them in error and 6 for a can of carb cleaner. 18 very well spent and a big smile on the test run home

Thanks to all who have ever advised on the above problems on here on other posts as I wouldnt have known where to start if I hadn't been reading on here for the last 2 years
