Re: TQC turbo intake hose
After tracking down a small air leak in the factory turbo intake hose (the
one that goes from the plenum to the turbo with the small brown thread around
it). I replaced it (temporarily) with a Nissan 200zx turbo intake hose. This
is a perfect fit, with only minor shortening required, but not factory...
I don't want to toss the original hose, its only got a small pinhole leak
where it rubbed against the light plug...
So, wash the orig. ($160 new) intake tube in dawn, dry it out well, grab some
wetsuit rubber glue and go to town....works great! Makes it like a new
vulcanized tube... (I just did the whole thing)
