Hi guys,

Quick question, is there anything i can replace the inlet pipe with?

I mean the the pipe that runs from the MAF/induction box and the Throttle body?

Just dont like the nasty ribbed pipe that sits there at the moment, i was going to buy a length of silicone pipe till i noticed it has a sensor built in on it ?

Thanks

I wanted to ditch it myself as well.

Thought about running an oil catch can for that pipe that goes to the oil heater (sensor you talk about) but don't like the idea of venting the catch can to atmosphere. Would also need to plug something into the cable for the oil heater as well.

So I'm interested to see what others have done with this too.

Im not fussed about losing the pipe that joins it or the sensor, i just wanted something that looks better than what's there lol......

If there nothing really ill get my dads mate to make me up a metal pipe with a nice finish to it

I've seen people use silicone tubing but cutting out and adding the sensor to the tube using jubilee clips.

Strange that nobody seems to make a replacement pipe! surely the ribbed section does not make for great flow?!

The original pipe is designed to be flexible to prevent the airbox / MAF from being tugged off under hard acceleration / deceleration.

Can you see the engine when you're driving?
