    PSA: If you are running a boost gauge and do not have an inline air filter installed

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Do not run an electronic boost gauge without the inline filter as the blowby from the PCV will contaminate the sender and damage it.

    A mechanical gauge will not have electrical issues, but over time the condensation and oil particles will build up inside the gauge and cause issues.

    This is an issue we have found with the FSI/TFSI engines. Here is the inside of the vacuum line from a 2012 B8A4 installation that was installed after 72 hours. The condensation and oil vapor fouled the boost sender.





    Your boost sender may look different, but mount the inline filter in the cabin to keep it away from heat as shown here. If you mount the filter in the engine bay it would melt due to the heat and then cause an airflow restriction.

    i highly doubt the filter would melt unless it was right on the exhaust. most plastics don't melt till 400F+, if using an electronic gauge the sender would typically be mounted under the hood correct? so the filter would also have to be in the engine bay. and that looks like an inline fuel filter, they are typically sitting right on an intake manifold in a carbureted car.

    edit: do you think that water is condensing from the air once it cools inside the car? a filter wont get rid of water vapor.

    You can doubt that the filter will melt, I have of people installing them in the engine bay and telling me otherwise, so my suggestion is to have it installed as I have shown to prevent any issues.

    Without a filter the sender failed after 3 days, with one in I haven't heard from the owner after a few months.

    You can decide what to do with your own setup.

    It will melt. There was someone who posted pictures of theirs on here. It was mounted underneath the coolant tank and still melted.

    Its just a better idea to mount it either where Shane posted above, or inside the cabin. My vote goes for Shanes location as that way you don't need to run fat vac lines into the cabin...

    Does this go for the VEI boost gauge as well? No such filter was included in the kit if so.

    Go to your local shop (NAPA or equivalent) and ask for an inline fuel filter. Works the same and costs about $3-4.

    Learned this the hard way!!! I had 2 sending units warranty from AWE before I realized I was screwing up my sending unit. They REALLY need to include one in the kit they sell.

    Reported issues from blowby from B5, B6 and B7 owners have been very rare, however, my posting was a general precautionary heads up and I included the B7 as it has a FSI engine.

    I have noticing that with the B8 engine there has been excessive amount of "stuff" in the vacuum line which have been causing issues.

    I currently have approx ~33K miles on my car if that also helps determine how long it's been exposed to daily driving conditions.

    Just so I'm clear on this, I have a Podi Mechanical gauge and I should still install an inline filter (not for electrical reasons) but because the oil particles and condensation will eventually build up inside the gauge correct?

    It honestly can't hurt... I would if I were you.

    replaced my sending unit twice. Not fun. Especially if it can be avoided with a >$5 part

    You will get buildup inside of the gauge and if anything the oil particles will keep everything inside well lubricated!

    But it can not hurt to have an inline filter installed.

    I've been having email issues and I think your silicone fitting got lost in cyberspace so I'll toss in a filter as part of that shipment.

    No problem, I actually received the silicone fitting like 2 days after we spoke. I was actually shocked to have received it, I was looking for a PM or something to say you were working on getting it sent out or whatever and then it showed up Don't worry about the filter, I was just planning on picking one up from Napa or somewhere, no need for you to go through the hassle of packing it up and shipping it off.

    If you are looking for an filter you are looking for one with 1/8" barbed ends so the vacuum line will fit snug over the nipple when inserted.

    Wish I'd have seen this thread a few days back! I just ordered a mechanical gauge setup and got it Friday. Ah well, guess that's why there are local parts houses. Thanks for the info Winston.

    The black UFO looking thing is an electronic boost sender, the filter is positioned upstream to protect it.

    If your card is being declined then our merchant processor does not like the information, we have no control over that.

    Does it matter which way the FIlter is oriented? I have it oriented like this:

    Manifold ---->[whitecap->filter->clearcap] ------> Sender

    Basically opposite of the way it in in this picture:


    any problem with that?

    The air filter has an arrow on the outside of it to show you its preferred airflow direction which is shown as I have it installed.

    If you install it in reverse the air will still be filtered, but you may not be able to see contaminants as they will be trapped inside the filter (how you have installed) vs. outside the filter (how I have installed).

    Ahh. Maybe it helps to look for those arrows, haha. THanks Winston, hopefully I'll get the gauge wiring done this week sometime and post up some pics and impressions. So far the quality of the kit is outstanding!
