    I agree...your engine bay is very nice buddy tbh with you karl, it was the vacum control unit i was confused with that you have removed, but no panic as I called down to my local audi dealership today and got one of the boys to print out a diagram off the system their using. But these pics you posted are very handy thanks as there are a few more pipes in the pics that I was unsure of to begin with..

    you mean all the vac pipes under the mani?
    save yourself the money and simplify it and get a catch can.
    tidies it up, minimises leaks, and if using a catch can fuel octane is increased.

    and if you were reffering to the vaccuum box ontop of the rocker cover, that can be removed also, again minimising leaks and future problems

    Agreed, catch can is SO much simpler.

    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.

    Certainly mate, there's a sticky thread at the top of the thread page, here it is
    N249 Bypass Guide for ARY Engine and all other A3 Engines
    Its for an a3 engine but its very similar.
    Searching 'N249 valve' will bring up other threads too.
    Basically, you remove that vaccum box and all attached pipes, then run one straight 4mm pipe from dump valve to mani, whilst leaving the n249 electronically connected (you can see mine tucked away under the charge pipe)
