    Took the S3 for a basic service, split pipe!!!

    Hi there

    took my 1999 s3 for a basic service to my mates and he said when he lifted the box to get too plugs 3 + 4 there is a little pipe that goes into a T piece from the box and it is split.

    What is it?
    Where do I get one?
    What difference will it make?

    Thanks again

    Steve

    oh....and it will reduce your top end boost slightly making the car run with differing fuelling as it cant correctly gauge
