Do any of you guys know how this is mounted and if there are like brackets that can hold it for fitting onto a fmic hose?

Here is the best diagram I have of the MAP Sensor (G31) for the ATW & AWM motors:

It's #6. The O-ring that seals it can also become cracked and create a boost leak.


Just for a closeup of the bolts and the harness, here's the one from the 2.7T motor in the S4:

It uses the exact same part. Since it has 2 intercoolers, they plumbed it into the pipe that merges the two intercooler pipes.

If you bought a fmic there should be a spot for it already, unless you bought a fmic for a ndbw car.

I am thinking of making my own kit as over here in the UK the kits are like $1800.

Oh so Throttle cable cars dont have this sensor?

well the throttle cable cars here in North America dont have the sensor, but if your car is a 2000+ and dbc then it might. Easy way to tell is to look at the top of the stock SMIC, if there is a sensor stuck into it at the top outlet then you have it.

Ok cheers guys.

If mine doesnt have it it will be so easy to make a fmic for my car. [:D]

Will just need to mount a ic core then use marine hose with a T piece for the DV!!![drive]
