Induction Pipe (?) for 916 3.0L 24v

Hi Guys, Hope that someone can help. My 3.0L V6 2001 Spider has started "kangerooing" down the road for the first few minutes when you just start it up. My mechanic tells me that I have a split in the air inlet pipe connector/induction pipe/whatever you happen to call it. Has anyone got one that they don't need any longer or can tell me where I can get one, preferably without having to go to a main dealer. Hope that someone can help. Here is a photo of the part that I need. (It's the black bit!)

Autolusso Induction


You could replace it with an Autolusso Silicone Induction hose available in Red Blue & Black, I've got one on my 916 T Spark.

a (very) cheap alternative, is to cover the damaged area with duct tape (electric tape). Make sure to do multiple layers.

In my ex-twinnie i cover the whole "spring" area of that part and lasted at least 2 years.

On the busso, i suppose it won't last that much, due to higher engine-bay temps.

Ofc, this is a temp solution only.

In my GTV sprortiva i have done the same, since i am rebuilding her all over (interior, exterior, mechanicals) and just wanted to avoid extra costs for now.

Definitely in the end, i' ll also get Autolussos' product, since it seem a good & dedicated (for our little bussos) product in fair price.

I repaired the split air intake on my Twinnie with this stuff. Neat job and still going strong. There is a thread on here somewhere that I posted with pictures but cannot remember what I called it now.... Doh !

It is a good idea to do this regardless of whether you plan on properly repairing it or not. I'd recommend good heatshrink wrap rather than tape, though, but carefully applied tape should work too.

By wrapping and thereby sealing the pipe, you can diagnose whether that's actually the problem or not. If you seal the pipe and the symptoms stop, you know that it is definitely the problem and you can go spend your hard-earned cash on a nice new pipe. Otherwise you might spend your money only to find that the problem actually lies elsewhere.

Make your own!
I did a full tutorial with pics a couple of years ago on this forum. Do a search...
It was for a 2.5V6 24v 156 but the dimensions a virtually the same. It's 3" id or 76mm for the silicon hoses and the same size od for the alloy pipes I used from AP motor stores on eBay. It was all the way from the throttle body to the MAF air filter housing doing away with the useless Helmholtz resonator. I even used an ingenious method of connecting the original rocker cover breather pipe to the induction assembly as per OE spec. Using a simple Schrader tyre valve with the valve insert removed leaving a 6mm bore. The bulb end of the valve pulled through the silicon tube and sealed perfectly around a 13 mm hole.
Job done and lasted 3 years before I sold the car and is still going strong, my nephew now runs the car! Still running great!
It produced 8 extra horses with a dual cone induction filter on a rolling road for comparison too and completely eliminated MAF and throttle body dirt\ contamination issues.
Worth the minimal money and time spent considering how much a MAF is.
