    Think I am loosing massive power on my LC AUQ.
    Have induction kit, FMIC, 3" downpipe, 200 cell cat and 2.5" catback, stage 2 remap.
    But my liquid gauge is showing a power reading of 192hp and mass air of 136g/s :confused:
    Could my turbo be on its way out?

    maf disconnected and it defiantly seems to be pulling stronger. Still getting same boost but just picks up better.
    Is the part number I need 06A 906 461 G?

    Thanks Lee... What are the £40 models like? I would normally avoid something like that, but seeing as the Bosch units are renowned for failing left right and centre, surely its worth a punt? Pierburg unit for £80 any more reliable than the Bosch ones?

    Seeing how many fail on here, I would have thought they will be struggling to reproduce anything of worse quality than the originals!

    What about performance wise?you reckon the bosch units are more accurate, leading to increased power/smooth running?

    edit: and where did you find out about the 12 month guarantee, or is that just standard

    No idea tbh, never had the chance to compare.
    12 months is the standard warranty.
