    Limp Mode/Boost problem please help

    Hi all, I own an A3 1.8T 2000 model.
    Lately the car has been going into limp mode. I discovered a leaking boost pipe which I have replaced, but the problem still persists.
    Now comes the weired part, If I remove the pipe from the silver thingy at the back of the engine, boost returns to normal and the power is back. However, It chows fuel like a mutha...

    Can someone please help with this problem
    What is the purpose of this pipe? Is the N75 toasted on my car? Is it dangerous driving with this pipe off?

    I will upload a pic of the little pipe in question shortly

    Thanks in advance

    where thwe car goes into a 'safe' mode running low boost etc when it discovers a fault, so you can still get the car home but not risk blowing it up

    Yes, that's quite right. To put it simply, there's just no boost
