Hello everyone. I have recently bought an 2001 Audi S3. Its a great car and so far i am very happy with it. However today i was doing some inspecting under the bonnet and noticed a large split in one of the hoses. The hose is about 1 1/2" in diameter and it located just above the engine and connects to the large L shaped pipe. Anyhow i taped it up using some duck tape and took it for a drive. When i came back the tape had blown through so i assume there is a lot of pressure coming through this hose and i noticed the turbo was taking slightly longer to come in. Will this split affect performance or am i just imagining things ? I dont know exactly what the hose does so i am hoping somebody can help me with this problem Thanks. Sean.
