Hi

After nearly two months of trying to locate the fault on my car it seems that with the help of my revo dealer that the car isnt sucking in enough air at high speeds and hard acceleration. Still we cannot locate what is causing this all of the hoses have been off and tonnes valves checked, intercooler etc.

Revo dealer suggests that a factory pipe may be weakend and collapsing at the higher speeds. Does this sound likley i was thinking about trying a set of samco pipes and hoses and hoping this would do the trick.

Cheers

There was a video doing the rounds a while back showing a TT rubber hose collapsing under high airflow. Did not recognise which hose it was but it could only be the rubber section between the air filter and the turbo inlet pipe as far as I can tell.

I think that Gary Handa had an inlet hose go on his car too but his is an extreme case (hose disintegrated).

Hardly common.

The hose in question is the rubber section at the top of the TIP... samco make this part. fabricate a CAI for your airbox also.

Looks like its not the pipes afterall just been down to pick the car up, they took readings all the way before the air went into the turbo and it was fine. Then first reading after the turbo was low. Looks like a new turbo is needed now :( so much money this is costing me !!
