    hello ppl. Just wondering if anyone has had a problem with their actuators, or has had a problem with car not holding boost. Just had a rollin road tune and the boost is dropping from 15 psi down to 12 psi, and there is no split in pipes or anything. Its made a rather nasty dent in performance, down to 181 bhp and 206 lb/ft torque. The bloke said this could be down to high ambient temperatures or a weak actuator, more likely the actuator. Anyone know if these are expensive? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Hi

    Not sure of price for A3/S3 but my old (non VAG) car had a Garrett T25 turbo and a wastegate actuator for that cost around £100 + VAT
