Default Turbo intake hose repair

Hope this may help you or anyone else that wants to try this, my hose broke around Christmas and I called the dealer and they are no longer a part you can get, that being said I ordered one off E-bay which was going to take up to two weeks to get to me so I got creative , mine broke at the Turbo end and this is the second time in 12 years, I'm guessing from the heat, so here's what I did to get the car going, I removed the rubber elbow from the plastic tube, their is a plastic ring you have to break off to remove the rubber elbow, you will see a reduced diameter when that's taken off and a molded ring that runs around that , I cut that part off, from that ring to the end, you will end up with a piece that is 2 & 5/8" diameter, go to Lowes and in the plumbing dept. look for a 2&1/2" rubber elbow hose, put a little grease on the inside of the hose and it will slide on that plastic pipe and get a hose clamp to hold it on, the other end will slide on the Turbo, then I drilled a hole in the plastic tube, get a hose fitting for the vac line tap it to that size , this project cost me around $10 and less than 2hrs to have it back on the road and it works great , I have still not put the replacement on that I got from E-bay

Necessity is the mother of invention, right? My Dad always told me if you don't have what you need, find a way to use what you have. I did that yesterday by "creating" a bushing for my power washer. It works great now.

I'm not sure what part you're talking about but if it's the elbow that goes into the turbo inlet, yes I have ordered that part new and it's still being made

My plan is to keep an eye on it and continue to use it, it's made out of rubber , the OEM fell apart twice, our dealership parts man told me over the phone that it was no longer available, when I bought my first replacement 12 years ago it was around $100, the one I got from E-bay was $60, I really don't think it's going to melt, might start to crack like a radiator host, but I'll see

Since I have a IR thermometer, I thought I'd take some readings today after I got back from a nice drive in the PT, the first reading was from the radiator hose, it read 75.7 degrees , then I took a reading from the intake hose at the turbo end where it connects to the Turbo and it read 63.2 degrees. just one more thought, the factory hose has an accordion style design on both ends probably for movement of the engine, and the hose I put on is smooth it may be less turbulent which could be better air flow or it could cause another problem with not being able to flex enough, time will tell. There was a physicist that said when you do things in a unpredictable way and gain a positive result is how you advance

It does get hotter....
Go and do a little spirit driving and then check the engine bay's temperatures at various area's see the results.


The repair is a unique one but should only be like a spare saver tire, used for a short while and NEVER if you accurate aggressively and getting into the high boost levels that will produce more operating temperatures.

I'm not afraid of truth, or to fail at trying something different, and I'll be the first one to report back if and when it happens. This discussion has prompted me to leave this repair on as a test trial, I do have a brand new factory style replacement in my cabinet, here in PA it has been a mixture of cold and mild days and if the intake hose is still going strong in the summer i'll take some more temp reading . I have seen a Youtube video of someone doing a aftermarket cold air intake on their Turbo and their's was a aluminum tube with a rubber boot that attaches it to the Turbo . I'm not expecting this to last forever, nothing does, I'm soon to turn 68 and still do most of my own repairs, my other fun car is a 58 ragtop vw beetle that has a 1835 dual dellorto set up that's a blast to drive and work on. Thanks to everyone for their thoughts
