I just removed my intake manifold, In the end I had to unbolt the primary turbo, to be able to lift up the air intake tube. Because the rear most bolt on the LH side of the inlet manifold is covered by this inlet tube.

Be careful not to break the plastic elbow (right in the centre) off the back of the inlet tube.

About 3 hours.

That bolt I was talking about.

Its possible to get a spanner on it, and undo it a fair way.

But you cannot get it all the way out.

Where has it broken? Did it break when you removed it?

you talking about the long main one to both turbo inlets?

 

Probably better getting a silicon one off ebay. You won't find a new plastic one, methinks... though try partsouq

A fee guys on here have had them. Only complaints ive heard of is they need a little bit of trimming to fit in. At this stage its probably your only choice.

Bear in mind people the B4 has the larger snout in the VF33 so any earlier revision tract wont fit.
