    Change as much as you can on the boost circuit mate. I've done upper intercooler hoses, the red hose from turbo to charge pipe, charge pipe to N75, charge pipe to DV, turbo intake pipe, DV to manifold, brake servo, and ripped out the N249 hoses and PCV hoses......... and breathe. Car is sweet now

    upper intercooler hoses:

    Charge pipe to DV & N75:

    Turbo to charge pipe (dont get this one though as its in the USA):

    2 metres of 8mm hose:

    8mm 5/16" ID Silicone Silicon Coolant Hose 1 Metre Red | eBay UK

    2 metres of 3mm hose:

    Turbo Intake Pipe if you dont have one. (this one is for the S3. Also I did buy from this seller in Hong Kong and it was a quick delivery):

    Think that should see you through the most of it

    The get a catch can fitted and remove the N249 valve if you have it. Guides are in the stickies section.
