    1.9 Airbox & Rocker Breather Hose

    I want to have a go at the 1.9 Airbox modification but I also want to plumb in the rocker breather hose after the AFM to avoid any potential problems.

    I had an idea of using a t piece joiner from an aftermarket DV fitting kit and putting it between the pipe from the AFM and the samco elbow going to the turbo.

    Only issue is the t piece connector on the joiner is too big compared to the hose coming from the the rocker cover.

    Thoughts?

    Cheers
    Craig

    I spotted the item by chance on display at the Autosport show back in January. Certainly does the trick.

    Ah, that looks like a much better idea! Thanks for that one Mike, will give it a go when I do the 1.9 airbox modification. (after I've sorted out all the other problems.)

    Can't remember - it is the same size and the outlet on the back of the cam cover.

    Yes - so don't bother. Standard black rubber hose looks fine.

    I still haven't got round to doing this yet, but I was just looking at a picture of a X20XEV engine and noticed the intake elbow going to the throttle body already has a connection for the breather hose.



    Any idea what size each side of the X20XEV intake elbow is? It looks the same (and bigger than 60mm) both sides so not sure it's going to be usable on the turbo intake.

    Cheers
