    Recirc Vacuum Pipe

    Ok I need help here

    can someone either take pictures, do a doodle, explain really well, or give me part numbers of the pipe that runs to the recirc dv on the turbo. As mine has gone awol and I have no idea where it goes, what it connects to, route it takes etc, and finding anything obvious on the epc is prooving hard.

    Cheers

    Do you mean the vacuum hose which runs to the actuator??

    If so it runs under the airbox and AFM, curves around the back of the engine and into the vacuum box right on the back on the engine block.

    Anyone who has chance, can you roughly measure said pipe, as one epc that I think does the job is 49cm long
