Hi chaps,

Just found a split in my upper turbo hose so need to replace it.
I recall ordering a silicon hose set a while ago and sending it back because the bottom hose didn't fit. This engine version has a different layout from turbo to intercooler than the others.
But I seem to recall the upper hose fit wasn't all that perfect either.
The seller took it back because I supplied the vin when ordering and asked to check if it would fit my car before sending it out.

Anyone able to point me to a supplier that can deliver
1) correct product
2) to Spain and
3) won't break the bank?

at least it explains the old furnace smoking a bit more under load recently :eek:

The local fiat dealer turned out cheaper than any internet sources and will have the hose on monday. The obvious things are sometimes best

55€, which is surprising, because after the silicon hose set mishap I asked them about a lower turbo hose and that was 180? at the time, and that is a smaller hose.
Internet sources started around 40€ but with postage it was more expensive and took longer to get to me
