Intercooler to TB hose replacement

Post by ChevyRockstar on Wed Feb 27, 2013 7:53 am

So yesterday the hose came off from the intercooler connection. I almost bought a new at the dealer for 85 bucks Shocked

Anyways looking on nasoic forums i've read that this hose has rubber inserts which some people remove because it's what cause the hose to come off. So am thinking of doing that temporarly well i wait to get this which I found Online.

None that I found, ended up getting the tomioka one as all reviews are postive and people have replaced the AVO with the Tomioka one due to bad fitment/ pain to install.

Ill be removing the rubber gorments for now on the stock one til the new one comes in monday lastest.
