I hope so, your asking price is a bargain too!
Well, i tried a length of silicone hose and because its at a slight angle and it kinks the pipe. so after some searching i found one of the german sites (bar tek) i think do the ribbed one but its 80 euros. after more searching i found a length of silicone ribbed hose that looks fairly similar to original but was £50

with the original ones getting pretty old now they are perished from expanding contracting, hot/cold and constant oil contaminants. mines well worn out. give me a shout if you manage to find any decent ones that fit and aren't really expensive

also thanks for the info on the place that sells the little connectors :)

I used silicone in the end Taylor, fits well and means all the boost pipes are new and in silicone hose now, so no rubber to perish.

Almost ready to fire:

Last few new bits arrived, new lambda, gearbox oil, and a new alternator/starter wiring loom from VW.







Should be ready to fire on Monday  :)

Now running, tappets need to fill back with oil (take a few hundred miles) but all sounds sweet.

Needs a good clean now, then ready for it's new owner  :(

Excellent Work Pete!

Nice to see you caring for a G40 and steering it back onto the OE path!

How much was the Alternator wiring loom out of interest? (just about all my small block vw's need one of these!).
