if you decat it.. like Rich said: it will fail the MOT. if you pay once to have a new cat installed then the jobs done once and for all (MOT ready). if you mess with a decat.. that will cost, then you'll still need to have a cat fitted pre MOT and it will cost again.

glad you found the issue, did sound like another pipe had blown off. there is no "permanent" fix for these joins unfortunately. I've heard the S3 intercooler is the only solution on the GTI but don't know about the diesels.

another member on here mentioned about sleeving the join with silicone hose and Jubilee over each side.. but I don't think its possible due to space on the intercooler side.. but then it might be I don't know for sure.

It will fail the MOT without a cat.

Got an exhaust that's blowing, was told cat is gone..I wanted to get peoples opinion if I should replace or de-cat it?

How much would I be looking for? Would love to do it myself, just can't be bothered doing it underneath without a ramp

Thanks

you probably already have... but double check all your boost hoses. especially the intercooler ones. I have a PD170 remapped so I think I know which pipe you have replaced. with all of those hoses.. like on the other VW platforms.. you have to make sure all of those boost hoses are pushed ALL they way in and the clips are fully seated otherwise they do pop out.

Thanks for the reply. Yes the bottom intercooler hose had come off. So done the same thing to that with the jubilee clips and tie wraps. Definitely moving quickest I've had it now although they are leaking a bit of air as I heard one of the pipes move a bit when under full boost. Is there any better fix for these because I would like to have full power. Not to mention all the black smoke out the back lol
