    ADVISE NEEDED. No power on high end revs

    Got a problem with my VR6.
    Had a bad miss fire above 3.5k revs from starting up this morning, the car has not been driven for a week, the miss fire then seemed to clear as i drove it longer, hmm just damp i thought no...
    Now the engine will rev as normal in neutral but will not rev over 4k revs when driven no guts at all.
    Note: No miss fire, it's like limp mode.
    New plugs and leads were all replaced recently never had any bother.
    I will be scanning the engine later today to see if vag com can pick up any faults, but what are your thoughts if any?
    Daily Drive 1995 BLACK VR6 Vee Reihenmotor. Headlight loom upgrade. Magnex Exhaust.

    Up date found the problem.
    Vag com would never have picked it up.
    The air filter has got wet somehow (two clips are missing off the air box could be this) thus the filter had collapsed and the middle section, and was being slowly in-jested down the intake pipe blocking the air off, no wonder had no power at high revs. Gotta love a quick fix
    Thanks for your input Keyo
