    Hey guys,

    That Hose behind the engine, red one that I believe goes straight into the turbo; Well that's finally gone on my S3 (no boost at all now) Luckily I have a new Forge one coming tomorrow!

    Is it an easy switch around? There may already be a tutorial, but i'm not sure what to search, Turbo hose?

    Thought I'd better post a photo of the hose in question.

    Cheers again for any help,

    :)

    Have got one of these myself to fit this weekend too, looks easy ennought but then they always do and sometimes canbe apain. Looing at your photo I see you have your DV venting to atmosphere, that wont be doing much good for your performance as the MAF wont be seeing all the air it should, a Forge 007P considered the best DV option.

    Funnily enough someone suggested that on another post I put up, when I bought the car it came with. Will change it when I can, should be a simple switch on that too right? They usually come with a cap but I didnt get it handed on to me :(
    Cheers :)

    Turbo pipe is very easy to do, you may find it even easier if you remove the strutt brace...
