2011 - 2012 possibly 2008 - 2010, need to check this

Post by mikey_b6 on Wed Feb 20, 2013 12:40 am

when i was doing my boost gauge installation i had to remove my tmic. i had done so before but never noticed this till it was a problem. where the inter cooler hose goes into the throttle body, the hose has a clamp on it as usual, but instead of being like the opposite end, it has a rubber sleeve that goes over the hose, and under the clamp. it is extremely thin and the oil in the system cause it to become weak and it tore causing my ic - tb hose to pop off during boost on a test run. it literally serves no purpose to my observations, and has been running fine without it. i do have a nasty oil stain on my block now cause it had been leaking for some time. take 5 minutes to check it.
