    Default Now that's what you call a hole! (turbo pipe)

    After several attemps of checking for leaks in the turbo pipes (due to spanner ligght and loss of power) I decided to check the whole lot of pipes and found the lower pipe (under air box) to have this massive hole in it.!

    It was already covered in duck tape I guess from previous owner! I have now patched it up and hope it will work.

    Does anyone know what this pipe is called???? It was a Ba ****** d to get out!


    I hope this will stop the black smoke and loss of power.
