    Advice Needed Regarding Dump Valve And Silicone Reducer Hoses

    Hi all.

    I have a boost pipe with DV outlet which is 25mm. Been looking at Collins DV's which say they have a 33mm neck.

    Obviously I need a 33-25mm reducing hose but the nearest I can find are 32-25mm. Do you think this would suffice? Don't want it to split.

    Also, what size internal diameter hose do I need to go from the DV to the FPR?

    Thanks all

    why dont u just get the correct 25mm DV like everyone else?!?!


    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Collins-Perfor...item25595a28b4

    ** ok its green, but its just an example.... email the seller or better still ring up and see if they have a 25mm one in your chosen colour


    I always use 3mm silicone for the vac hoses - this ensures a nice tight fit on all joins and no need to use clamps.. it will be a mega tight fit on the collins but better this way than too slack

    Because I'm after a Collins one and can't seem to find one with a 25mm neck.

    If you know of anywhere I can get one it will be greatly appreciated

    That's weird. The link wasn't there a minute ago.

    Thanks for that. All the ones I could find were 33mm. I've heard of Matt Lewis Motorsport too so that's a bonus. I'll email him now
