    Hi chaps,

    Having a problem with my A4 (excess black smoke and hesitaion on acceleration), i have narrowed it down to the offside lower intercooler hose (s shaped one). It has a large split in and needs replaced. Does anybody know of places to get this rubber hose, as audi is quoting £200 for it! I was wondering if samco hoses could be used to make a replacement or whether there is a direct fitted part?

    Thanks for your help in advance

    Going off this vagcat diagram, an offside s shaped pipe would be item 5 - turbo to fixed pipe on lock carrier (sorry, can't get the picture any bigger)

    No charge air with throttle pressed equals unburnt fuel equals smoke so hopefully....
