    Hose Behind Engine

    Hey guys,

    That Hose behind the engine, red one that I believe goes straight into the turbo; Well that's finally gone on my S3 (no boost at all now) Luckily I have a new Forge one coming tomorrow!

    Is it an easy switch around? There may already be a tutorial, but i'm not sure what to search, Turbo hose?




    Thought I'd better post a photo of the hose in question.

    Cheers again for any help,



    Eddie

    Have got one of these myself to fit this weekend too, looks easy ennought but then they always do and sometimes canbe apain. Looing at your photo I see you have your DV venting to atmosphere, that wont be doing much good for your performance as the MAF wont be seeing all the air it should, a Forge 007P considered the best DV option.

    Funnily enough someone suggested that on another post I put up, when I bought the car it came with. Will change it when I can, should be a simple switch on that too right? They usually come with a cap but I didnt get it handed on to me
    Cheers

    Turbo pipe is very easy to do, you may find it even easier if you remove the strutt brace...
