as we all know the top intake hose on the phase 2 2.0s have the problem of splitting.
at a dealer you will pay £100 + for a new one.
i have kind of found a solution,.......
70mm to 76mm silicone hose 45 elbow, 150mm long £20
direct fit to replace the hose, and will never wear out again.
but..... on that silicone hose there is no t peice to plumb the oil breather pipe in,
so there are 3 solutions and i dont know the best so i need opinons.
1 . fit a oil breather filter, but from previos experiences makes an oily smell in the car
2. drill a hole in the pipe and hope it seals, in theory could give maf issues.
3. lenthen the oil breather pipe from the cam cover, and drop it down the back of the engine,
also not 100% if the breather pipe is connect into the intake for a reason, vacume, eg.
