    Ive noticed that my car doesnt feel like its pulling right for sometime now. I have noticed that I can hear the turbo spoiling up hard when I have my foot planted but not much action until highier up the rev range. Not sure if I should be looking for a boost leak??
    Cheers

    Checking for boost leaks would be a good start, also scanning for fault codes with vag com may show up any problems you could have.

    My car had a boost leak for ages, once I found out where it was comming from and fixed it I got all the power back that I had been missing :icon_thumright:

    Could this be a case of the hot weather as there seems to be a few threads like this recently (just titled differently)?


    I also shave the same problem and cant find ant split hoses.


    My boost gauge is saying I'm getting good boost, but the car just don't feel like it is.

    Also when was your DV last serviced?


    And did you use the correct dump valve grease?
