Air intake hose

Hi all,

On my Barchetta the last elbow before the throttle body has split on the concertina section. It would appear that these are no longer available for the early Bs, does anyone know of a replacement part that will do the job?

Re: Air intake hose

there are some rubber hoses, and rubber reducers on ebay.... throtle body have 6cm or 6.5cm diameter... not sure now.

this is my first attempt (3 inch downpipe)... later i bought silicon hoses from eBay (45 from throtle body and some reducers)... and that straight tube i replace with inox... my original filter box was broken so i go that way.

Thanks HP thanked for this post

Re: Air intake hose

Thanks for the info. I'd rather keep it standard and the hose does need to be able to stretch and flex as the pipe it bolts onto is fixed whereas the throttle body moves with the engine.

Re: Air intake hose

Thanks for the offer, if it's in good condition I'm interested.

Mine's split in the inner part of the ridges, you can't really see how bad it is unless you stretch it.

Re: Air intake hose

Almost forgot about this. The B has been in hibernation, only came out a couple of days ago as the Jap thing has let me down again......

Looking for this hose:

Re: Air intake hose

Thanks, I don't have any pics of my old Alfa engine bay and wasn't sure. Might have a fish on alfaowner to see.

Re: Air intake hose

Just bought an Alfa 156 intake pipe, thanks for the info. Seller has measured up and reckons it's about 20mm too long but the right diameter. I can make that fit!

Will post pics once it's sorted.

Re: Air intake hose

Pete! Have been hunting for that pipe, only its buried deep within a garage load of boxes which needs sorting.

If that hose you have doesn't work, let us know and i,ll continue the search.

Re: Air intake hose

Will do, cheers. Needed something rapidly as the Barch has been the daily driver for 2 weeks and the old hose has a 1" split in the bottom of one of the pleats!

No worries, if it's a good fix you should make a guide.

Re: Air intake hose

Bum. It doesn't look that much longer, but the pipe into the MAF sits about 2 inches out with the 156 hose...
