In Topic: Deliberate Hole In The Intercooler Hose? 1.8 Tdci

Its a 115. A remap could get that much extra power? Probably not so good MPG or dual mass flywheels?

i think the real question is "Why WOULDN'T you want a boost gauge" ;)


Ha i've just upgraded from a 1.3 Mitsubishi spacestar, this is a different world of performance and mods! may take me some time to adjust...

Just taken it for a spin with the hole blocked and is definitely running better - more responsive and smoother acceleration.

Thanks for your help.

Thanks guys,

It looks like the insert is a purpose made part to take another tube so hopefully the removed boost gague theory is the correct one.

I'll block it with the tube and bolt idea and take it for a spin now.

I picked it up cheap from a van dealer who got it px. Makes me wonder about the history? Why would you want a boost gague on a diesel estate??

cheers

Thanks,

Yep - seems to have been venting oil.

I'm new to diesels, am I right in thinking air goes from filter - intercooler - turbo - engine?

should there be oil in this pipe anyway?

despite how it looks, the engine only has 49,000 on it!

could this leak have caused any other problems?

cheers

Hi,
It definitely looks like it has been added by someone, and it looks like it should have a pipe connected?

there is a fair amount of air blowing through it.

It changes the idle slightly if I block it.

below is a pic. It is the small pipe hole sticking out from the top of the rubber hose:

thanks
