silicone turbo hoses

Recommended Posts

Anyone know where I can get a silicone t-piece turbo hose to fit the re-circulating BOV?

Tried Demon Tweaks, but they're out of stock.

Needs to be red (choosy about colours!), 51mm ID (I think), 25mm "t" and at least 70mm in length.

Cheers, Ian

Try eBay - they always have a selection of new and used.

Search on Samco, T-piece, BOV or Dump Valve

So DT runs out after I posted my recipe! BAHAHAHA

(snaps out of it, and is now back to near sanity)

When I did this, Samco was the only manufacturer I found who made a suitable T-hose. Try their dealer directory at http://www.samcosport.co.uk/distributors.asp

I recall Marcus advising me a few years ago to not use silicone in the BOV area as silicone when mixed with gas fumes and ingested by the engine really screws up the O2 sensor. Not sure if this was in reference to silicone spray to lube the BOV or hose. I would check with Marcus on this subject.

Thanks - the original coupler hoses for the chargecooler (including the turbo to chargecooler) are silicone (to handle the heat) so I am pretty sure that it should be OK.

I can understand why silicone lubricant would be a bad idea....

Marcus - any comment?

I wouldn't worry about silicone hoses, they are commonly used for charge air. Silicone spray, on the other hand, I'm told is good for generally screwing up all things electronic.
