    Yeah if there's any leak from that pipe the car will run terrible, poor idle and lack of power.
    temp repair until you get a new pipe I'd say.

    It's only a vac pipe on idle and over run.
    when driving it takes full boost from the turbo.
    either a scrap yard or just get one from the dealers if can't imagine them being that expensive.
    it needs to be 100% sealed or your car will suffer in performance.

    If you have a scrappy near you its the same part on audi skoda Seat and vw.
    Anything with the 2.0 tfsi engine in has it so should be very easily found.
