    Default strange 'blowing' noise.

    2.2 DTI. I have a strange noise that I can only describe as air blowing when under acceleration. Doesn't do it, or at least I can't hear it so much, without load. Ive had a quick check around for split pipes but nothing obvious. Any ideas?

    Check the actual Intercooler unit i couldnt find any pipes split or loose and later found out it was the actual intercooler rad itself

    I've just taken the top cover off and the drivers side boost hose has a 1" or so split on the underside. Likely culperit?

    Definitely boost hose. Just done a temp repair with a solid sleeve and a jubilee clip.
