    Yeh thats exactly where I thought it went. Not done it yet though as it requires me to cut the rubber join between the two hoses and thats effort lol. Will do it when Im next working on it.

    I have one on my S3 AMK, it goes on the left side of inlet manifold under the other vacuum pipe, dead easy to fit, my old one did look a bit mushy inside so worth changing them.

    I'm interested in pic's too. I fitted the Dahlbäck intake on my AMK and that OE hose isn't really a perfect fit now. All twisted and semi-worn...

    Why would the intake hose affect the vacuum brake hose thropposite sides of the engine?

    Sorry i'm a bit late with pics but here it goes...
    [​IMG]
    This shows the old hose removed, i moved aside the turbo hose to gain access to remove the crimp clips holding the vacuum hose on.
    [​IMG]
    The most difficult part is pushing the new hose on the bottom pipe, its a tight fit and you might need someone to hold the pipe with some long nose pliers while you wiggle the hose on. I used jubilee clips but i think they look a bit untidy.
    [​IMG]
    The next step is to cut the top part of the hose away fro the lower part your replacing. This bit needs to slide back on over the top pipe put dont cut too close because it sits on top of the top jubilee clip and could wear away slightly with vibration so you need a bit of padding. Next clip up the top rubber hose to the plastic pipe and put back on the boost hose.
    Job done.

    Did you notice any difference after replacing this pipe or is it a 'just incase'?

    Does it list the engine codes it is suitable for on the forge website or do they think it will fit every 1.8T
