The short version -
Can anyone direct me to a good place to buy a replacement upper hose for my 2.4 JTD 20v 156 SW, preferably silicone??
The long version -
After much faffing about with the EGR, MAF and MAP plus replacing the small turbo solenoid pipes with silicone versions I still had clouds of black smoke and a persistent error since partially blanking the EGR valve.
With some decent weather, I decided to have yet another go at stripping down etc.
I removed the battery and noticed oil around the tray and elsewhere in that area. Eventually, I found a 4in long split in the upper turbo pipe... no that might explain the heavy smoke!!
I've thrown on loads of reinforced tape as a very temporary measure (and to check for improvements) and sure enough, no more smoke!!
So, as above, I'm now after a replacement upper hose. (156 2.4 JTD 20v SW). Does anyone know the best place (price/quality/speed of delivery) to get one?
Alfaworkshop.co.uk have the standard rubber ones for £60 but any alternatives?
Thanks in advance,
