    Hi there I have today fitted a turbo revs fmic on my agu a3 but have a problem so here we go…

    On the standard hot side pipe there are 2 pipes fitted but on the fmic the are only 1 which is for the dumpvalve so where does the other fit 2 and its gotta go somewhere as its juddering when trying to use the boost if left off.

    I’ve searched alot of fitting guides and cant find 1 that lets you know where it fits

    i am guessing that you mean you have taken the standard charge pipe off? Why have you had to take that off? The two outlets that come off of the charge pipe are for the dump valve and the other one is for the n75 valve

    i didnt think the fmic kits came with a new charge pipe anyway

    It's the n75 take off that's missing mate, and it does all your boost control!

    Do not drive the car until you've sorted it, as it's very likely to do serious damage.

    Strange that you hadnt heard this, because almost every fitting guide for the turbo revs kit mentions it.

    You need a 6mm threaded hose tail, drill and tap it into the new charge pipe, and seal It up with chemical metal
