    Sick of boost leaks, what pipework to fix it?

    So today i had another episode of leaking boostpipes and squeeling noises under various loads and temps.
    Who has successfully fitted a FMIC on a tdi? What pipes did you use what lengths and angles?

    I was hoping to grab the oem solution from a mk4golf or bora but they sell faster than things that sell very fast it would seem.

    ideas?

    Where are the leaks coming from? Are from split hoses? Are they leaking due to the clapping? Do the hoses pop off?

    they havent popped off this time, and tbh im sick of trying to smoke test it. sometimes they come and go. i think its around the top of the intercooler. I want to get rid of the whole lot and fit a front mount r charge cooler tbh, no more flexing and moving of bad parts.

    replacing the pipes with new or even the seals, would be costly and probably pointless!

    Unless you think otherwise?
