Boost pipe split!!! HELP!!
« on: January 17, 2012, 12:18:27 pm »
Ive noticed recently that the G isnt pulling as well as it use to  :-\ , so i went for a look under the hood and found that the boost pipe between the charger and IC has got a split in it!!

Im guessing you cant buy these parts new anymore,

so does anyone have a spare one knocking about or knows of a decent replacement part??

Could i get away with a aftermarket blue silicone hose??
Also what sort of temp would be running through the pipe?? Under 170 C??
Any help or advice would be great  ;D

Cheers in advance!!

Dave

failing that I have a spare OEM one, its not split all the way through but it starting to show signes of going so it might get you another few thousand miles. Drop me a pm if you want it. Fiver delivered or something?

Thanks for the offer but think ill just buy an aftermarket one after what people have said.
Does anyone know the I/D of said boost pipe??

I think I paid 7 quid delivered for my 45 bend for that section. Derby performance hoses , give em a ring always cheaper on the phone.
