    Default Where can I get this part?

    Anyone know what this part is called and where I can get it?

    Vauxhall want £96 for it, but they are trying to sell me the whole thing down to the intercooler... I only want the rubber pipe bit.

    I think this may be causing my sluggishness at 2000 rpm and the black smoke out of the rear of the car.



    It comes out of the right hand side of the engine as you look at it from the front of the car and goes down to the intercooler.

    Any help greatly appreciated!

    Cheers,

    Russ

    You can get a silicone replacement.

    Take the hose off and measure the pipes they go onto (they're not the same size) then a search on Google will find a stepped hose.

    Would this cause the sluggishness and the black smoke due to air escaping?
