Recommended Posts

Hi guys i thought id try and replace my inlet pipe today and ive totally screwed up. Feel like crying 😂, i got my old inlet pipe out with great difficulty but i cant get the replacement (oem) back in. Then in the process of trying to force it ive snapped a line coming from a T piece but i dont onow what its for lol. I will most likely take it to a mechanic but of course cant really drive it in this state. Cant seam to upload the picture but its the white t piece thats next to the alternator and its snapped the plastic on the other side.

His it just a t piece that's snapped or a vacuum line "take off" ?

If it a take off on a sensor with wires going to it ,its probably the fuel line purge solenoid. 

If it's just a t piece in some vacuum lines ,replace the t piece with one of the same bore .

If you need to get it moving put some tape round the hole on the t piece if possible to stop it leaking and block any open take offs or use a bolt to plug any open vac lines .

It will probably run well enough to get you too a mechanic, once you've fitted the intake pipe . It's a pig of a job with the inlet manifold still on , so I take the inlet off and replace the gaskets but it can be done.

Aftermarket intake pipes are normally silicone  ,so a bit eaiser to fit . Most tend to unbolt the purge valve ,from the underside of the inlet and relocate it (cable tie it elsewhere) . This might give you a bit more room when trying to refit the intake 😉

Most breakers will have a purge valve if you need one , you do have to drain the coolant to remove the inlet manifold completely.  

I've only done a few while rebuilding engines and my v1 intake pipework route is different to yours .

Why were you switching back to the oe intake , was the aftermarket intake pipe "mapped in " and could you just refit the silicone one for now

Yeah when i was looking at it the second time i did think i should have just remover the purge valve 😂 more research needed before i start taking stuff of in future lol. No i had my car mapped with the standard one in but it was ripped ti bits at the turbo so just replacing it with like for like i dont plan any more power mods for this car. Thanks for the comments guys actually feel like i can manage to sort this now 👍

If it's off the same year then it should fit as all classic to at least hawk ,single scroll turbos have the same size intake .

 

If you ask Jacob at jdm solutions Suffolk,  he'll probably be able to confirm if it fits your version scooby bud 😉

When fitting a aftermarket silicone intake it can cause a bit of "hunting " on idle on a newage . Not definitely but can ,so thought I'd mention it .

 

I had some viper hoses on my old 3ltr omega engined vectra b and was happy with the quality. 

Otherwise give Alyn @asperformance a bell , he will advise you on the best option ,tell you if it will cause hunting and supply stuff cheaper than most .
