Leaky boost pipe, 2.0 TDI - solution?
I know this isn't a new problem, crap VAG boost pipe seals leaking. Is there a decent solution out there though, or do people just slavishly replace them every year or two? I fully expect to have a hybrid turbo within the next year or two, and would rather have a proper circumferencial sealing clamp around my boost hoses than the rubbish Audi fitted.
I've seen Forge hose kits, but they appear to use the same sealing technique as the VAG design, just with pretty fluoro-lined hoses. As far as I know, the quality of the hoses isn't the problem that needs addressing, so I imagine they are primarily being sold because they look s****y.
