    name that hose/pipe!!!

    another thread from me,

    i have had emissions light on car for a while now and its for fuel trim malfunction, checked everything possible and found nothin apart from manifold stud snapped at top left corner

    had a smoke test done today and there was a leak from one of the pipes coming off the turbo. its only small, if you go from top of actuator, it goes to a black connector which has a top pipe and a bottom pipe, the bottom pipe goes around back of turbo housing, this i where leak was from anyone kno what it does???

    Black connector sounds like the front BCS (boost control solenoid), in which case its just a vacuum hose.
    Can buy lengths of the stuff from ebay in different colours made from silicone. You would just need to know the size of it, will be somewhere around 5mm.

    Yeah you can buy meter lengths of it on eBay or similar and replace all of them if you wanted, just need to know what inner diameter it needs to be.
