Intercooler hose (not the usual one!)

Hi,

One of my turbo to intercooler hoses has split, and it's not the 90 degree elbow one which seems to be a common failure.

It's the short one after the metal pipe which attaches directly to the turbo side of the intercooler, the rubber part of pipe number one on the picture.

I can't seem to find a replacement for this anywhere online and wondered if anyone could help?

Thanks
Jacob

Might be because I'm on my phone but can up attach a clearer picture of the diagram. I can't find that set up on eper?

Why would you not just buy it from your local fiat franchise?

That's the one off eper, not sure why it's so small :/

Because I only want the 1 rubber section, I believe the dealers only sell the whole section with a metal pipe and 2 rubber hoses at great expense.

Which section is it under on eper. If it's the pipe I split that you are talking about then fiat only sell it to you as a kit of two pipes. I fixed it for about 14 in the end.

I'll check the eper again when I'm back at my computer for you.

So the set up is turbo-90 degree elbow-metal pipe-short hose-imtercooler.

Its the short hose directly before the intercooler that's split.

Its a bit of an odd shape with a couple of different angles in so not sure if a non oem hose would fit.

Re: Intercooler hose (not the usual one!)

I have a replacement piping from Forge when I got my intercooler, I can messure up the old pipe and you could source a replacement from any silcone pipe maker? (for example ASH hoses?)

Re: Intercooler hose (not the usual one!)

Ye it was the pipe I thought it was. I bought a 45 degree bend silicone pipe and then kept cutting it down bit at a time to fit. Held each end with jubilee clips. There obviously isn't a fixing on this pipe like the original though so it's being held on using a cable tie and so far no problems. I got this 48mm fluoro lined pipe from eBay hope this helps.

Brilliant mate thanks!

What did you trim it with, just a Stanley knife or something?

I've already ordered the 90 degree from them for the hose before this and seems like decent stuff so might just have a crack with that one too, 17 is a bit cheaper than 72 which is the cheapest I've found from a dealer.

I'll order the one that KBonnie suggested mate, save you digging your old one out if the one off ebay will do the job.

But thankyou for the offer, much appreciated!

Re: Intercooler hose (not the usual one!)

@Jacob ye just cut back a bit at a time and keep offering it up. I did the same because I wasnt sure which I'd need so I've still got the 90 degree bend to change at some point when I can be bothered. Glad to have helped I nearly bought the forge kit which although it will be good I can't justify that much of a price difference for a bit of silicone piping.
