    i have a 51 1.8t a3 sport quattro, i have no boost and at around 2-3k rpm all i get is like a loud noise, sounds like a electric motor lol, i have checked all my boost pipes and pipes going to turbo none are loose/sprit etc any ideas pls,
    Car only has only 44k on clock and had new turbo fitted at just under 40k by audi dealer before i bought it i also have reciept to prove so cant be turbo gone surly
    i have oil, water and engine runs sweet on idle and in revs just with no boost,
    thanks for any help

    the turbo come in on if it was all stock setup? Are these turbos loud enough to hear over the engine clearly or are they small and have a subtle whine?

    I'm asking cuz this original poster's descriptions sounds just like my car. I can't convince myself the turbo is coming in or if it is, it's pretty weak.
