    Hi there, I mean that when I let off the accelerator and change gear there's sometimes a light whooop noise. Not like a dump valve pttissssh noise. (Hope that makes sense?)

    Think I'll try the new o-ring thing first.

    Hi Simon, any idea what size o-ring you used? Thanks.

    Well UPS have delivered a very well Engineered set of replacement boost hoses.

    Now is that a Mod that my insurance company will need to know about - doesn't increase power just makes sure that I don't loose any.

    Don't think it's classed as a modification - just replacement parts to improved design !

    hey man, are you sure that TFSI IC = BKD IC?
    I ask you because I can get a cheap S3 IC and I don't know how It's going to fit in my MKV 2.0TDi BKD...just buying the forge silicone hose kit?

    Hey, just wondering if you could offer some advice... is there any sure way to know where the boost leak is coming from when i have the engine running and i am listening for a the whistling noise all i can hear is the very loud engine haha

    Also could you give some dimensions on the thickness of the O rings you have used, as i have replaced a few on the joins what looked like they were the leaks but i still have the whistling and a i still feel like i have a lack of grunt :/

    Thankyou, Scholey3.

    hello mate, i have the same problem with leaking boost pipes from the right hand side as you are standing over the bonnet, could you send me the print screen off ETKA with exploded picture of the boost pipes and intercooler please. so i can get the part numbers of the seals and pipes i need.

    cheers kai

    I need your email address to send it Kai.

    I assume you are talking about a BKD engine

    Edit : see if this works :- [​IMG]
