Nozzle sticking out of the plenum chamber?

Looks like the port for the ECU to measure intake pressure - the hose shown in the photo should be connected to this

Thanks Alan. This could be the cause of our breakdown then. RAC didn't spot it

It's amazing how many times breakdowns are caused by things like this...or the hoses cracking and leaking. My chum Bonzo had the ECU replaced on one of his cars....at some expense...no cure. I saw a broken rubber pipe,, trimmed it and put it back on where it had obviously come from...fixed. Modern electronics is pretty reliable, but things like connectors or pipes still fail.

I dont believe that is the map sensor Bibbo. I am sure it is the take off for the boost gauge that goes to the transducer? I stand to be corrected of course :)

That is correct, it is the takeoff for the boost gauge. It should not be left open, regardless, but the car would run fine if it were capped off.

The MAP sensor is down by the turbo isn't it, doh! I remember mine splitting on the rubber elbow now!
