Well, funny you should ask. I just go the car, and had to replace the exhaust as it was blowing really bad. It also stalled when you came down from medium / high revs. I put this down to the exhaust blowing. However after changing the middle box section, it still does it (less often now). So I wanted to see if there was something more. I was also getting a large amount of white smoke coming from the tailpipe, but I have narrowed that down to over filling with oil (which I have now drained off). I still cant sort out this stalling though!!!
