    a week a go i noticed my car wasnt as quick as it was (mapped 225 bam) i done some quick logs and noticed my boost was low req aswell as act so wasnt a leak just not being asked to make boost, it would peek about 1900. I unpluged the MAF and all was well again boost back up to normal etc so i thought New MAF time for me. I got a genuine AUDI MAF swapped it out and low boost, back down to peeking at 1900. I thought must be faulty MAF so returned it and got another fitted this back to the car, still broken. there are no fault codes etc, any help would be good thanks

    My MAF count goes up to about 170/180gs which is about right for the boost it runs when its plugged in

    it will be low as its not running full boost when its plugged in, I used to see 210+g/s
