    Im not happy with the forge boost hoses i have, they keep leaking and now my car is struggling to hold 15psi and it should be holding 25psi at peak torque, its really peeing me off so im fitting new standard hoses again and and just putting the forge ones over the top for syle/ looks,
    its mainly the couplers they are just **** and forge sent me a load of random couplers that just make me think WHAT THE EFF are they doing to me lol

    Why are you moaning about them on here? Get on to forge and send them back if they aren't fit for purpose!

    if you got a hybrid get a decent fmic kit which comes with new pipes that dont connect to the intercooler with that **** coupling mechanism

    Ive been looking at forge twintercooler the setup is much stronger on that when its combined with the stock cooler and both are working ive seen decent increases on tfsi engines, i think driver side coupler is too small and recirculating boost pressure is leaking out so that will be sorted tomorrow will post on how it goes

    Boost leaks royally suck. Even when you think they are fixed, a month later it all goes tits up. Im going to custom fit a charge cooler, and do away with all the stupid clamps audi use eventually.

    I have to drive 15miles with boost leak is it safe to do so although the pipe in question in the one that comes onto the driver side intercooler connection ?
