    Last night when ferrying the boys about cruising along in 5th. Power dies, no turbo, ignition off and on, turbo! Happens again in a few more miles, same thing. Is this the sticky vanes problem? This happend when i first bought the car in 4th, seems to be when under load (car full, taking hill in too high a gear). I think this is the problem and am going to clean it today, but just wanted to check

    Finished and what a difference! I will make a thread after me sunday dinner the day with the pics ive took haha i thought it would make a bit of a difference but not as much as it did im astounded! While i was on i took the egr and inlet off and cleaned them too as they were thick and i mean thick of carbon! I cant stress enought how blown away i am with the result of this! Huge performance boost!

    There is already a guide for the b5 which is pretty much the same but it lack pictures of the B6

    If you go through the egr outlet I think its harder

    The way I did it was remove the exhaust from the turbo move it out the way remove the exhaust gasket and cover the exhaust port with a piece of cardboard with the exhaust studs sticking through the card put the gasket back on then put a couple of larger bolts over the studs then put the OE bolts on and tighten up

    pierce a hole in the card insert a piece of pipe through the turbo vanes then fill it up with Mr muscle and jobs a good un :)
