What have i broken this time?
I was driving up the strip at USC when i noticed i wasnt running the regular 0.8 boost i usually see, was more around the 0.5, so when i got back i parked up and looked under the engine bay, i could hear an air leak and after some poking around i found a hose had blown off.
Least, i thought it had blown off, not only had it blown off, i blew the connector off with it! this meant i could not reattach the pipe without some hardcore bodging.
Which came in the form of a ziptie and some duck tape!!
Anyway, here are the pictures of its location, i think its a sensor which monitors boost? i hoping someone more tech minded can help me
I can post more pics if needed, anyways,
I drove it home easy as to make sure i didnt kill anything, but suffering from 'manfoot' i did boot it once to see if my bodge had worked, and it had, it was running like normal again, but i chose not to chance it and tried to drive off boost all the way home where it is now.
Basically, does anyone know what part ive broken and if its easy to find a replacement?
