    ive been having some power issues lately and im guessing its due to a loss of pressure/air escaping or something like that as i can hear a rush of air quite loud when i n rev hard driving or stationary??? it sounds like its got one of them gay dumpvalves on it , but thats not the case im running a 007p?
    as i dont have vag com ive checked quite a few hoses but cant see anything obvious so today i decided to strip down the TIP and everything attached to it it all seemed great apart from all the oil inside the tip?? is this normal??? ive attached some pics see wot u think?????
    as i got resolve the problem myself its off to the amd in the morning as its doing my head in and want to get it sorted asap[​IMG][/IMG]

    The oil in the TIP will most likely be from the breather system, it deposits oily gas back into the TIP to be burnt.

    Have a look at the little pipe coming out and bending 90deg and going onto 'y-shaped' valve under the inlet manifold. Mine had pretty much snapped. Replaced this all the others including the big one in your photos with Forge silicon and made a huge difference.
