    ok cant upload a photo but should be easy for someone... i have a audi a3 aum 1.8 2003 facelift. i have been driving the car for about a week and thought there has been a boost leak so just had a quick look.

    from the hockypuck you have a pipe coming out the splits into 2, one goes into the top of the head and the other goes underneath, i believe it goes to the intake mani by the throttle body, however where it goes down from the hocky puck just after where it splits into two there is a huge crack all down the side of it. obv i will be getting a new one but what do i need to buy and does this hold boost? basically, has this been my problem? cheers tom

    Yes part of the PCV system and it'll make a difference if split. My advice is check for others whilst your there as you'll probably find more leaks! The part number I can't remember but go to your local tps and they'll order another for you!
