    Leaking fuel hose/filter

    So car has been smelling of fuel, and poor start up in the morning, realised I have a leak coming from fuel filter / fuel hose. Getting sorted on Tuesday. Doesn't seem to have affected performance but will the car be okay running for a few days? I'm tempted to park up as slightly dangerous if...

    Stage 1 wanting stage 2

    I've used the s2000 filter cones over the past year but is the jetex cone better? I know it looks better. Cheers for feedback.

    Stage 1 wanting stage 2

    Thanks for feedback. I'd probably agree with you will order badger tip with metal turbo attachment. Is there a massive gain over a standard silicone size? I have heard great things about it. I will need to remap up here as I stay in Scotland. A place called ecotune it's the best you can get up...

    fitting intercooler

    planning on buying a welly intercooler and fitting kit via ebay, I know the correct sizes for intercooler itself and piping required. I am not bad with tools so have a rough idea, is it relatively easy, I know its a front bumper off job. If someone who has fitted it DIY before could give me...

    Blanking inlet hose

    Just had the car mapped stage 1, night and day. I have PCV delete, my inlet manifold is blanked off with a socket, with the higher boost it has popped out even with a jubilee clip, so looking for a blanking grommet. Does anyone know the size of this outlet? Thanks

    Intercooler - what I need

    I know there's hundreds of threads on this but couldn't quite pin point my questions. I'm looking at universal intercoolers, I know what sizes are available, and most people go for the larger size and get rid of the crash bar. I'm just curious as to what hoses I need? Is it just the 2 lower...

    Seized coilovers

    So got my car with coilovers, the back sits to low, I have 25mm spacers on the rear and with 2 people or more in back the car just scrapes and exhaust system clips nearly everything. I tried to raise the coilovers but they are completely seized. I tried wd40 penetrating oil, wire brush and extra...

    Low boost, back to normal after on/off

    Hi badger, yeah this is the only code I now have after plugging n249 electronically. If I delete the 17705 code it comes back about a week later. When I turn the car on when cold (done this past few days) it will only Boost to 0.2 bar max. Even once it gets to full temp. If I take key out of...

    Low boost, back to normal after on/off

    Thanks for reply. I have recently plugged in the n249 and deleted the code but does seem to come Back. I had a boost leak test done a month or so ago that came back pretty much perfect. Could be dirt in TB? I do need to change my OEM hose to silicone.

    Low boost, back to normal after on/off

    Started the car Upto today, hadn't driven in about a day or so as I usually use everyday on several journeys. Anyway, once the car was running at optimised temperature, I noticed the car would not boost past 0.2 bar, felt extremely slow and I could hear the waste hate was alot quieter due to...

    Difference 8l and 8p mirrors

    I received a set of mirrors of I believe a b6 2004 a4, I thought they would fit my s3 8l as honestly look identical, even on the base etc for fire ment. But I now believe the b6 shares mirrors with the 8p? I'm assuming they do not fit even though they look so similar on close inspection, if...
