    Thumbs up Cheers Prawn! :D

    Just wanted to publicly thank Nick (aka Prawn) for his help today with the car.
    Nick let me use his vagcom today to read a few faults, also learnt a lot about my car that i didnt know!
    Found a very common hose which had split too! car feels so much better now!
    We also took a few readings from the car to get a rough BHP figure, i think Nick worked it out to be roughly 195bhp! i was very impressed! :D

    Thanks again Matey!

    Liam

    No worries man, happy to help out!

    Since finding that split pcv hose causing a boost leak on my own car, I've found that hose to be split on every single AGU engine I've seen!

    Glad it's made a difference I'll upload those vagcom logs we did a bit later when I'm at work. I think it peaked around 158g/s, which is fairly good for a ko3.

    Agreed, my AGU had a split PCV. And the APY engine I've got now as well. Damn those crud-u-like hoses!!
