    Correct me if Im wrong but it looks like you have a manual boost controller which that broken pipe is connected to, which could be why you're having problems with boost.

    It should have an N75 which is the standard boost controller and wiring connected to it, there's probably a plug not connected to something near there.
    Not sure about the wiring for the seats I'm afraid, there might be connection under the seats for people that chose electric seats but I'm just stabbing in the dark.

    to wire in your seats you need a perm live, ign live and earth, nothing more
    ​Wish Rachel would let me have my TDI mk5 back
