air intake

Hi all I have just joined this fab site and hope someone out there can help me with a little problem i have with my GTV 2ltr ts.
When i tap the throttle pedal there is a short but noticeable sharp suck of air around the air intake manifold after the throttle body, then the engine will pick up. on the road the engine is not pulling as strong as it was, is the plastic box that is part of the inlet manifold prone to crackini look forward to your replies

That intake can split ... ours did when the belt went and engine back-fired creating pressure in the intake unit.

It usually goes underneath where you can't see.

Also check the oil separator valve that is just behind the throttle body and connects to the cam cover. It is only clipped on and being plastic, the holding bar breaks and the valve cover comes off.
