This device, nicknamed the Doggie Collar by its inventor, replaces the factory clip that connects the intake hose to the intake manifold on Pumpe Duse Engines. It is not uncommon for the clips, or hose barbs to wear, causing a boost leak and loss of power. Usually this power loss is accompanied by an increase in smoke seen from the exhaust.
The kit consists of a plate, spacers, and long bolts, and can be installed in about 10 minutes. Also fits some Mk5 model cars where intake tube from the intercooler meets up with the intake manifold.
Now includes new Viton O ring

After removing intake hose to intake manifold connection, replace existing O-Ring with New and Improved Viton O-Ring, which creates a better seal than the factory one. The plate is not symmetrical so line up the KermaTDI logo towards the passenger side of the vehicle. Remove both bolts (possibly retainer wire). Install bolt, washer and spacer in the bottom hole and get it started. Do the same with the top hole and tighten it to about 10 NM. The threads may stick out a bit on the back side.
