    I've fitted one to my A3, it sits just behind the fans next to the battery.

    You can also do away with the PCV check valve if you want to, a known boost leak, so long as the catch tank is sealed.

    Do a search on UK mkivs for PCV simplification and there's a how too for fitting a catch tank and deleting the PCV valve

    cheers prawn, will do.how good are you with the turbo side of the car?i recently had a custom map from p-torque but had no increase of power, he said it could be the n75 but changed it for a working 1 when i got home.he also said he'd put the map on and i should notice the difference when i change this, but nothing.my cars standard at 218bhp and should be around 280bhp now with all the mods and map.wot do you think?
