Hi, I have problem with my car since i have it. ('95 850 t5 automat wagon).The problem is when i accelerate the car has low power till the turbo pressure come. Even when i do 80km/h and press the pedal a little bit (1cm), there is very slow response. If i press suddenly all the way down there is no wheel spin.(This is just for an examlpe for the problem). I changed the ic hoses for silicon, silicon vacuum line, ipd hd cbv, 16T, performance spark wire, new sparks. Didn't help. Could be the throttle position sensor. So i thought if i disconnect the TPS cable it will be worst, but the car runs way better. Much more response and i feel the power under my foot. Has any of you had experience with disconnected or bad TPS.

Thanks Benyos
