yesterday i was driving on the freeway at about 65mph.i was sitting at 16 psi boost and around 750egt.i started loosing power to the point of decelerating and stoping.in the process of decelerating i would push in the clutch and the motor would rev right up.when i would let the clutch out it again would have no power. i noticed my water temp also jumped from its normal 180 up to
210.i poped the hood,everything looked fine,so i fired it back up and it drove fine with its normal power level and normal water temp to detination.any insight on whats going on?

Check your fuel filter and all clamped connections for air leaks...Sounds to me like as you drive you are accumulating air in the system..A good way to find out is to put a clear inline filter to see if there is a large air bubble..I have a small air bubble in my prefilter, but it hasn't given me any troubles.Good Luck!
