    Hey
    i have noticed twice this week the s3 i have will sometimes hesitate thru the rev range above about 4750rpm when i accelerate hard.could this be the collapsing intake pipe i have heard about? if so do the samco hoses make any difference?

    I had the problem on mine as proven by the rolling road at QST post rechip. The Samcos definitely fixed it. An added bonus is they brighten up the engine bay!

    What year is your S3 Ian? I'm sure only it was only early S3's that had this problem.

    Is it worth just changing the intake pipe to overcome this hose collapse syndrome?

    If so how much is this particular pipe and how easy is it to fit?

    hopper,
    Forge is sending me a Golf kit for my ARX 1.8T. Once I get it / fit it, I'll let you know if it works /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif
