    Hi guys and gals,

    as the title says - has anyone done this on their TDI?

    if so does it make much difference to throttle response and also does anyone know where i can get hold of the aluminium upgrade kit as i cant find it on the net anywhere for a TDI?

    Cheers

    I'm actually also interested to know whether this makes a difference on the TDI's. Quite a popular mod on the petrol turbo's...

    yeah i know that's why i am intrigued to find out - if it does then its a certain mod for me. i think it will make a difference as an aliminium intake pipe doesn't stretch like the rubber one that is factory fitted

    Have a search, as there was a discussion on here a while ago as Forge were looking into developing one.

    what would be the benefit of fitting this? i.e what does it improve on the petrol turbo models?

    The petrols had issues with the boost pipe collapsing after remaps. So with the updated pipe, the pressure could be wound up a little more, I think they claimed up to an extra 10bhp... Though I don't know how accurate that is :)

    So it doesn't give you an extra 10bhp, it just allows you to turn up the boost by another 10bhp without the pipe being a problem?
    Am I understanding that right?

    Or do they mean that you'll gain 10bhp by fitting the pipe?
