    I'm 99% sure the AGU engine is used in the golf so it's a yes from me, I'd say contact somewhere that sells them and ask to be sure, then they should let you send them back if they don't fit. I'm sure RichA3Turbo on here sells silicon hoses and has an A3 so might be a good idea to ask him.

    Hi mate,


    cant reply to PM for some reason!

    The AWW kit from SFS will fit! No problem. The only thing that's different is the turbo intake pipe, which presumably, it doesnt come with anyway!

    We can do SFS hoses.

    The samco kit for AWW is a 5 hose kit , on their website they have pics
    http://www.samcosport.com/samco.asp?make=volkswagen

    Could you have a quick look at the link for me and tell me if its the same as SFS, am i correct in thinking that the 3 large bore hoses are for the intercooler , and the 2 smaller multiple bend pipes are for the DV. I have a forge DV on mine . I think some kits come with a pipe so the DV is fitted on the cold side is this correct? what are the benefits of fitting the DV this way. Is it best to just fit the kit so its as my AGU is set up?
    What colours do SFS do , and whats the lead time on them, and price?

    Cheers

    The SFS kit, you can more ot less guarantee that its identical to the Samco kit. The big one is IC>TB, the coupler is for the lower intercooler pipe, and then 90o is for the turbo>intercooler pipe. The think one is DV vacuum (i think!) and the other is the DV return hose.
