Lets face it...these are s**te!

I reckon they would collapse at the first opportunity!

Anyone found a silicone replacement?

Paul,

Can you disconnect the ABS ECU without taking out the pump?? do you have to bleed the pump??

No problem here.

You could fit stainless steel pipework.

After having three replacement pipes now (1 before and two following a remap), i have been searching for other options.

I have contacted Samco & Similar reinforced pipe manufacturers to see what is available...(maybe a group buy could be organised?)

I have also enquired about getting a SS pipe made today, but they say there is no point as you would still need to have a rubber section as it goes straight onto the turbo and this could potentially be the weak link...

For the time being i have one of the old split pipes which i am reinforcing with Carbon Fibre and Fibreglass to see if that will make a difference.

Surely this isnt a new problem? Has no-one found a solution in the past?

Assume you're replying to another thread?
The ecu can be removed without taking off the pump. Doesnt affect the fluid element. Only need to bleed if take the pump off!

Maybe you can use a silicone hose to attach the SS pipe to the turbo, intercooler, intake pipe

Old post i know, but i fibreglassed one of the old ones, and its going great so far, but looks a bit messy.

So i am still on the look out for a suitable hose...
