    Where to buy pipe with map sensor mount?

    Going to be doing my own pipework for intercooler soon and just figuring out how to mount the map sensor, have looked at the vxr pipe but it comes in at around 55 plus the vat...

    is there anywhere that sells something that will do the job? im only planning on hiding it down by the battery tray so doesnt have to look good!

    have done a search on here and not really found the answer.

    Tel you easiest thing man.

    I did it, and it works fine i dont know why people pay loads for a mount that does nothing.

    Drill 2 holes in a pipe, get a nut and bolt, 2-3 rubber rings, 1 metal washers. Then, put bolt through sensor, rubber ring, bolt through hole in pipe... rubber ring on other side and then washer, and nut on end. Put a rubber ring on each side of the outside of the sensor if there isnt one.

    It does the same thing. Its 2 holes in a pipe no matter what way you look at it lol. Either pay alot, or think logically.
