    Default 360 performance

    Hello all. My 360 seems to have lost a little power. Still goes great (don't get me wrong) but seems to have just lost a little power. Any ideas? Clutch? ECU? I had a few Sundays ago where I started it up and it had hardly any power - turned it off and re-started it fine. Not sure if it may be exhaust as there is a lot of white powder in the bay.

    Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    The hybrid ecu used on the 360 is easy to do a reset on, you need only remove the battery for 20 mins (live or earth will do) and then refit and start engine.
    Most important thing is only use the key to start the car, DO NOT rev the engine in ANY way and leave idle for 10 minutes.

    Job done.

    The easy way is to just turn the isolator switch under bonnet.

    Don't forget if the cars been stood up for months the octane rating of the fuel could have reduced. Fuel doesn't 'keep' very well and looses its octane over time. Try filling up with Shell's finest Optimax too.

    I thought the white powder was sign of the cat failing ?

    The 360 standard backbox baffling material has a nasty habit of disintegrating leaving the engine bay covered in white powder.

    That sounds more Trev. I will try to re-boot the ECU today. Thank you all for your input.
