Hi all, New to this forum!
Straight to the point, I drive a 1.8 S3 W Reg. Turbo is fine in 1st, 2nd and 3rd. 4th if starting from low revs and trying to build up, the turbo is really holding back. If only touching the accelerator slightly it sometimes kicks in fine. Its pretty much the same in 5th and 6th! Ive tried googling problems but get alot of different answers! Also - i was trying to check some hoses earlier (not really a clue as to hich ones i was meant to be checking) and found one with a slight split in (the thicker one coming off the metal pipe), removed it, covered one end and blew down the other and it wasnt leaking so possibly just a surface split and not all the way through? (sorry if i sound daft, havent a clue on turbo's) Would this hose leak under greater pressure? Anyway any help you guys could provide would be great. Its been like it since i bought it and would like to see the cars true potential!
