    Hi

    An Audi health check recommended me to replace my plenhum chamber, they said it was slightly distorted.

    Any info on where or what this plenhum chamber is would be much appreciated!?

    Its "A chamber, located between the throttle body and the runners of an intake manifold, used to distribute the intake charge evenly and to enhance engine breathing."

    Maybe clean the egr/intake manifold flap/manifold - mines a tdi and it was quite dirty...

    If im right, they mean the Intake manifold flap ?

    £202 from EuroCP.

    Or if its after the throttle body as suggested below, thats teh EGR Valve :S

    Is there anything wrong with the car?
