The 225/210 hp 1.8T engines as fitted in the MK1 Audi TT, Seat Leon Cupra R and Audi S3 have a organic rubber hose on the intake manifold that feeds the brake vacuum system. This hose is prone to failure leading not only to a loss of engine power but also brake efficiency. The OEM replacement is only available with the hard pipes included, which incurs considerable unecessary expense. As a cost effective replacement or a precautionary replacement to avoid the potential failure we produce this silicone re-inforced hose.
Please be aware that these hoses were patterned from right hand drive vehicles. Whilst we believe these to be correct for left hand drive vehicles we suggest that you visually check their suitability, as replacement items, with those fitted to your own vehicle, before attempting installation.
