    Why dont you just fit the PCV revamp kit........alot better for your car. Seeing as the weakest link is the valve get rid of it entirely. Car runs alot smoother aswell. I have a group buy on ATM for them. Just waiting on them being delivered by Revo.

    Seeing as they're out of stock and nil in the UK Friday deadline is gonna be alittle difficult. Its a delete kit that allows the front PCV to be removed and a blanking plate fitted. The front PCV is very weak so its been proven that deleting it allows your engine to run smoother. This does not stop the crankcase oil vapour problem though.

    That's Audi retail prices.

    The PCV gasket they sell at is £16.61+ VAT. Cost to them is £10.63. 36% margin to play with on that.

    The PCV valve itself is £31.91+ VAT, costs Audi £25.84 with a 19% margin.

    Don't forget VAT which makes it an expensive Loba pump!
