    Thread: Overboost and MAF codes

    1. 12-01-2009 01:07 AM #1
      Completely stock 05 GTI 1.8t (As far as I know). I've been having problems with the car going into soft limp mode ever since I bought it. Everytime I drive it for over 15 minutes it ends up in soft limp mode. I had it scanned today and I got back overboost and MAF codes. I just cleaned the MAF last week, so I'm hoping it is not completely bad.
      Could this be caused by a bad (stock) N75? Could the MAF cause both of these codes? I'm having a hard time seeing how the MAF would be related to overboost.
      Any help is appreciated.

      Diverter Valve? I've had similar problems....and was told this was probably it. The location of the valve throws off the readings of the MAF and retards the motor
