    Guys I have been searching a boost leak and I found a couple of split hoses under the inlet manifold! I am aware that I could just delete the PCV and fit a catch can, but in this instance I would rather just replace this set of hoses, but is the Main Stealers the only place to buy this as paying for stuff direct from Audi is like automotive rape (so to speak!)

    Cheers

    You could go to TPS but its probably more worth doing a catch can as it can be a lot cheaper. Can cost £25 and pipes etc cost £50 at the very max!

    A full pipe set to go under the inlet is around 100 quid from TPS/Dealer

    06A 133 789 is the expensive one if its the plastic pipe as its supplied with most of the bits fitted... technically you can bin it all off even without using a catch can...
