156 JTD Boost Hose Identification...
okay... a proper JTD technical question - who knows their stuff?!
I bought a new(ish) lower boost hose off Ebay a few weeks ago, and set about replacing my one (which is caked in oily crud) as it has a leak somewhere. Good job I checked before I ripped the old one off - the new one is different.
Basically, the intercooler end is the same, but the turbo end is different - on my 2001 2.4 JTD (140) the hose connects to the side of the turbo, on the "new" hose I have, it appears to connect to the front of the turbo as it has what I could best describe as an elbow & U-bend in it (my one is essentially straight).
So... which hose have I got? I was assured it was for a 2.4 JTD - does anyone know if the 20v engines have a turbo with a front exit?
