    S3 AMK breather hoses collapsing, anyone recommend what ones to replace them with?

    As above, I've noticed my engine isnt running as smooth as it should be, one of my hoses that joins a black plastic thingy next to the dump valve is collapsed and properly squidgy, found this on eBay Audi S3 TT 1.8 20V Breather Hose Kit. Roose Motorsport | eBay UK

    anyone else used them?

    cheers

    They are just the dump valve pipe, n75 and one other, doesn't look like the complete kit. I asked for a quote for the solid plastic pipe (that runs round under the inlet from the cam cover) from Audi and VW and it was $120! Madness for 8 inches of plastic pipe.

    It's all about the catch can mate plus it probably works out cheaper than buying forges hoses:

    You haven't heard the best bit, Forge are making a catch can and wait for it...retailing it at around £150!
    You only really appreciate how retarded people are in this world when you log on to a forum and recoil in disgrace over their spelling. How are any of you actually employed?!
