Ph1 tired

  Ph1 172
MY phase 1 is feeling tired i think it doesnt seem to hav that kick and more when it hits the power band/cam or whatever people want to call it! My mate thinks it mite b clutch but there is no engine riding the clutch while accelerating, clutch is kinda high tho

Engine has done about 86k and a cambelt change wouldnt go a miss but would the need of cambelt change make the car not hav that kick??????

Answers pleeeeeeeeeeeeaaaseeee!

When was the last cambelt change how many miles/how long ago?
As if its mega old it could have stretched/ slipped a little and the timing be out slightly??

If the timings slightly off it can lose you significant power, although it costs a chunk - I'd be going there first (Probably needs doing anyway)
