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
This device replaces the factory clip that connects the intake hose to the intake manifold on Pumpe Duse Engines. Kit consists of a plate, spacers, long bolts and can be installed in about 10 minutes.
- 10 mm Open End Wrench or 10 mm Socket
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.
Simple, straight forward and it works. Not all that expensive in the grand scheme of things. Highly recommended. Craig Faichney on 23rd Feb 2018
I couldn't believe how my car was running after this repair. It's like someone who lives with a cat and doesn't clean the litter box enough and they become accustomed to the pee smell. I guess I got used to my car running like crap. The difference is unbelievable! So easy and fast to do. 10/10 would fix again. Unknown on 20th Feb 2018
Was not happy at all, love the idea of the product but I really needed this for my commuter vehicle, got sent two Completely different size metal sleeves, was not happy at all, many hours of aggravation in the freezing cold. Unknown on 18th Feb 2018
Looks good, works great! I found the kit to install and function perfectly. Better than buying a new hose and having the problem again later - because y'all know these cars will outlast another hose! Also fast shipping and a package of yummy gummy bears - Thanks guys! Brent on 16th Feb 2018
Ordered this product to Canada, shipping was fast. Noticed oil around the hose and debated buying a new hose but found this product at half the cost of a new hose, Installed in about 10 minutes.
Quality product, simple installation for anyone. Would recommend to someone with the same problem I discovered. Fixed my issue permanently,
Thanks kerma !

Great solution to a common problem. I was looking to buy a new hose and anti shudder valve but this was a solution to both at a 10th of the cost Unknown on 25th Nov 2017
Intake hose blew off 1500 miles from home. Dealer wanted well over $300 to fix it. Lucky for us a local mechanic knew about this product from previous experience with VW's. It would be advisable to install as a preventable maintenance item. Thank You KERMATDI. Jeff & Tiana on 16th Oct 2017
Fixed the problem and was easy to install. I would have preferred a blank piece of metal, as I hate labels on my stuff, but that option wasn't available. tsol on 2nd Sep 2017
This works great and solves a common problem at less cost than replacing with factory parts. It is labeled for BHW engine, but the bracket fits great and installed easily on my BEW Jetta engine. However for BEW the supplied o-ring was wrong diameter, but that is a minor item. Unknown on 2nd Aug 2017
Cleared up our retainer issue 100%. Fast and easy to install. Monica on 3rd Jun 2017
Excellent option to retain a perfectly good hose rather than purchase a new one. pete on 22nd May 2017
Love the solution, I did have a pressure leak at that exact spot and this has cured it but the installation was murderous because of the hex head bolts included.
The engine has M6 cap bolts installed from the factory and I'd STRONGLY suggest you spend the $2 at Home Depot to get a set of 75mm M6x1.0 bolts and throw away the 10mm hex head ones in this kit.
The upper press hose makes it a challenge to get tools on the 10mm bolt at the correct angle unless you have the right combination of short 10mm socket, universal swivel joint and short extension. I don't but because of all the other M6,M8 and such bolts I do have a set of long ball-end hex bits.
The key here is that because of the location of the front bolt and the location of the upper intake hose it is a challenge to apply inward pressure on the 10mm bolt to get it to catch in the intake manifold's hole.
I spent an hour doing this install with the 10mm bolts. I can install the 6mm cap bolts in 3 minutes which is much more sane. It's a shame they aren't included by default. Gerard on 20th May 2017
Brilliantly simple solution to a poor design Bakari Kafele on 24th Apr 2017
Works great!!! Car runs and starts better then before!!! This is a great fix for anyone who has a VW with this problem on their car. Unknown on 21st Apr 2017
After installing the doggy collar fix it was like a totally different car. Instead of starting to get power at around 2k rpms the acceleration was much smoother afer the repair. Awesome product Unknown on 28th Mar 2017

The OEM hose was practically brand new and one of the tabs had already torn off causing my vacuum leak.
This little ingenious Fix took me a total of 20 minutes from unpacking reading instructions to installation and clean up.
And the difference in performance with the supplied upgraded O-Ring is just amazing. Bob from Hainesport, NJ on 18th Mar 2017
Easy solution to the problem. ADAM CUNNINGHAM on 11th Mar 2017
Great product that solves an obvious factory defect No more oil leaks or hose hanging off.Glad I found it by chance while looking for something else Super easy to install,fair price. THANKS Frank C. on 4th Mar 2017
Works like it should from factory, looks badass. Cheap enough that's is not worth my time to fabricate. Well done Sean Morrison on 10th Feb 2017
