    Breather Pipe Help



    Noticed tonight that the previous owner has replaced two hoses with aftermarket ones but not sure if fitted correct and maybe missing a part 13a & 9a have been changed over

    noticed part 6 is missing both pipes just connect nothing inbetween and also the end of part 2 which connects on to part 5 is broken

    would this cause any running problems ? What is the purpose of these parts ?

    Any help would be great thanks

    I think 6 is a one way valve and is needed
    part 2 is the main breather from the crank so i should imagine is making oily fumes smell in the cabin? it all needs putting back together or there is the oil catch can mod that eliminates most of them...

    thanks for replies

    I'll get a price for the parts missing or broke

    doesn't sound like it will be cheap either

    Is the 13a pipe the equivalent of this Forge one (Forge Motorsport | Alloy Fabrication) that goes to the 'hockey puck' looking device?

    yes or you can get one on ebay as well that will replace it. 13a and 9 seem to split or be damaged a lot pipes are very brittle down there
