Power Loss

I recently had the car dynoed, and the readout showed that my car isn't producing any more power above 5,000rpm. At the moment it is only (apparently putting out 180.6kw at the wheels!

Someone suggested it might be the MAF, but before I get it booked in to another dyno place to check, is there anything else that could cause such massive power loss?

Have you performed the "MAF test"? It should give you a rough idea how your car is performing.
