Hey guys!
I did a GT3071R build a few years back and the car is still amazing after all the miles. This year I'm doing a 1995 S6 Avant GT3076R build with connecting rods and VEMS. All has been good aside from these threaded micro holes on my compressors inlet. There are 3 of them around the circumference of the Turbo. My inlet boot doesn't go on far enough to cover them up. Do they need to be plugged? What are they for? My GT3071R Turbo didn't have these. Doesn't seem like leaving them open is the thing to do for many reasons.
Thanks!!

Seeing how they are spaced evenly around the inlet like that leads me to believe they are either for a restrictor plate, or possible some kind of clamp system. Either way, they should be sealed off to keep the air flowing from the filter, not the holes.

Agreed, thanks! Just confused why they sent it like this when they know what I'm using for. It was probably returned by someone and they needed to get rid of it and figured some sucker (me) will deal with sealing the holes. Easier to seal them up than return by mail and play that game for me.
