    Default Ideas please - VXR Broke...

    £1.50 piece of plastic broke my VXR today. Its happened twice now.

    Any ideas where I can get a metal one? Today preferrably.

    Its a 4mm (inside) 6mm (outside) diameter 'T' piece connector thats used inline for my turbo boost/vacuum pressure & boost gauge.

    Nope, that wont work.

    The boost pipes are much larger, and the boost gauge feed pipe is smaller.

    The T Piece I had worked, but wasnt strong enough. I'll go out now and take a picture of the pipes.
