    Hiya, I'll try to keep this as short as possible without waffling on...
    A couple of mornings ago I started the car and it ran very rough on tickover like it was missing a cylinder. It wouldn't seem to clear itself so I left it running and tried disconnecting each coil in turn to see if one had failed. Every time I disconnected one it made a difference so I ruled them out. I turned the car off and then started it and it ran fine. Kind of made me think something had got damp in the night but it's never suffered with that before.
    Yesterday morning it just wouldn't start at all, I cranked for about 10secs. Tried again and it fired up as normal.
    On the way back from work tonight it has developed a massive shunt/hesitation at about 3000 rpm but is fine below that. I don't know if I can drive through the hesitation because each time it does it it scares me as it's quite violent.
    I've lent my vagcom to someone so can't check for codes just now. I'm just hoping this is a common problem
    Thanks for reading
    Si.

    I think it's the vac feed to the N75 Bradderz mate. I made another post the other day about a vac line snapped off a check valve (you pointed out what it was) I found this vac goes to the N75 but Aragorn suggests it shouldn't be routed from the mater cylinder pipe. Where does the N75 get its vac from?

    The n75 is a boost control valve thats boosted off the turbo then through n75 to the wastegate its connected to the intake pipe to bleed off back to the intake to control boost, if im correct i think you mean the n80 valve (purge canister solenoid valve) post a picture up from start of the pipe where the problem is then to the n80 valve which i think your talking about. Will give me a better idea as i tend to ignore them little niggly things lol i plan on deleting them all soon and fitting a catch can but cant find a decent write up anywhere so just going to see if someone posts one in the mean time my next job is icm delete as my heavy load/boost misfires seem to occur more under heavy throttle.

    Ok lets see if we can get to the bottom of this. The first pic shows where the vac line starts from this valve near the inlet manni. It runs along the bulkhead then along the heat shield under the airbox (indicated by red line in second pic) to the valve on the turbo pipe (arrowed in the second pic)

    It connects to this valve and the other side of the valve connects with some grey vac pipe to the wastegate I think
    How should it be plumbed up?

    That's what aragorn said too. So what I have here is some sort of bodge by a previous owner.
