Hey all,

Hope you are all enjoying the weather.

As the subject says, i am looking to replace the silicon 90 degree pipe with a metal one and want to know what the diameter is of the charger inlet pipe.

I would get it off the car and measure but i am not at home atm.

Cheers

Adam

simon,

how much do you want for it? (just the alloy part)

would it be a straight swap over with my current 90 degree silicon pipe? obivously i need it to be the same size as the pipe work and charger inlet so i can put silicon pipe over and clamp it on.

Its in 2" alloy pipe work, i had the 1 silicone at the intake the 90 alloy pipe with a 500-700mm (roughly) length on to a 45 silicone then the rest was alloy pipe in to the intercooler the intake side is all fine, i also have the charger side which was just a silicone on the charger but that side has been damaged as well as the intercooler, most/all clamps are mikilor as well i was wanting offers around £40 delivered for the lot but i could cut off what you want and send to you


EDIT :- Heres a pic of what i've got



I could send you the 1 length thats at the top of the pic or cut off the remaining to the intercooler (cut tight to cooler where number 6 is written)

its just the pipe from the charger inlet to the piping is only a few cms etc and so i dont think its worth trying to replace the silicon with a tiny corner of metal alloy.

You can get around the problem of "sucking in" very easily and cheaply.

When I was low boost and had this problem, I went to a factors and bought a straight length of 2" mild steel exhaust pipe, cost about £4 I think. I then cut 2 or 3 "rings" off the end of it and inserted them inside my silicon hose. No more collapsing and the car ran much better. Smile

Stan,

cheers for that, but wont it be a faf to get the tubing in or is it a case of leaving the silicon on the intercooler piping side, pop off the charger side and slide the "rings" into the silicon piping and bobs your uncle?

If so how thick were they? i have looked and seen either 50mm or 51mm al, was going to go with the 51mm. Did you use the jubliee clips too to secure them in place? Do you have any of the said rings going spare? Smile

Simon, i wouldnt want you to cut up your piping for the sake of a few rings if you understand?

There are companies that will custom make stiffer silicon bends as well. E.g.

Just remove the silicone pipe and push a couple up inside it in the middle of the pipe where you are getting the collapse.

I haven't got any left was over 4 years ago when I was low boost and did this mod. Yes
I think I made the rings about an inch long, no clips to hold them, just slide them up inside...Smile
