156 2.4jtd turbo flexible sleeve


Have a 156 51 plate 2.4 jtd (wow 144k on the clock still kinda running.) Been running fine until the engine light comes on when booting it in 4th/5th. Found the problem just cant find the part (at a nice price).
From the air box there is U bend hard plastic pipe that heads for the turbo, at the end of the hard plastic pipe is "flexible sleeve" I have the alfa part no. of 60669460 it's a sponge bit of 90 degree angle pipe that flexi's to connect directly to the turbo, it also has another detachable pipe going to the engine block higher up.
The flexi part of the pipe is split in several places hence engine management whinning about lack of air to the turbo. I have bobdged it tape which is better but want to fix it.

Alfa want £50 anyone know where I can get this cheaper? Not this is not the standard pipe that goes under the car this is at the very front of the car between the radiator and the engine.

You could try autolusso as they have lots of spares but TBH £50 isn't a massive amount to spend.

You can also try to get a silicone replacement for a permanent fix.
