    On the 1.9 TDI 130.
    What would happen if someone had fitted **** vacuum hose from the vacuum pump to the collection of valves and what not down the front of the engine. I.E N75 valves and what not.

    Would this cause **** mpg?

    What do you mean by ****?

    If they are just cheap but do the job then no problem

    But if the collapse under vacuum then they are useless

    Not sure on the mpg side though but I think you may notice a lack of boost from the turbo

    Power is still pretty good. This one was **** it had fully sucked its self closed.

    Sorted now. We were barely getting 48mpg on the M6 at 70mph. My 2.5 quattro can get 46.
