Turbo > Intercooler Flexible Pipe Blown Off
Had a small problem with my Audi S3 225 with Revo Stage 1 Remap the other day.
I was driving up a 2 mile 70mph hill, doing about 70mph (ish), got to about 3/4 of the way up, and my cars power just died, revs dropping down to near enough zero, but no warning lights. I managed to pull into a layby, and just as i did my car cut out.
Went to look in the engine bay, and found the turbo to intercooler flexible hose had blown off where it is screwed on via a jubilee clip to the turbo hard-pipe. Checked for anything else broken/not working, but all seemed ok, so i just screwed the pipe back on (no damage to anything).
Just trying to think why it happened and how to prevent it again.Im just wandering if a jubilee clip is supposed to be used, ie is it like that from the factory, or is it supposed to be another type of clip (or maybe it just wasnt tightened correctly). And also obviously there is more air being forced through the pipe since my remap, so would i need to upgrade the intercooler hoses?? Would this support the jubilee clip in securing the flex to the hard pipe?
