First off Happy New Year All! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif Following on from some of the recent threads about boost leaks etc, I thought I'd do a visual inspection of the pipes today on my standard 2001 A3 TQ. I do seem to be experiencing reduced performance and an increase in turbo lag. I came across pipe which looks to have either been leaking oil itself or had oil leaked on to it.. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif Please excuse the ignorance when it comes to technicalities and component names, I'm hoping some of you may know what/where the pipe is located from the pic attached? If not, I'll endeavour to get better pics tomorrow. If anyone could give any advise/suggestions I'd be most grateful, if you need any more info then fire away! Thanks in advance! Cheers Ben /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif PS - If like me you've forgotten what day of the week it is, Top Gear is on now!
