    Samco hose fitted

    Hi, managed to adapt the samco hose to fit my early 99 s3.
    basically the dv and feed for the charcoal cannister fit no problem,the dv is slightly more to one side and the charcoal cannister feed is slightly higher up but no major fitment issues.The n75 valve has the feed on the other side to the samco.The wire to the sensor is not long enough to t directly back into the samco so i bought a 30cm length of 6mm internal diameter pipe and metal joining piece so that it could be connected into the correct position.Seems to run fine ,although i'm not sure what difference it makes as the n75 is 30cm away rather than connected to the intake.But it's still in-line with the actuator so i don't think it will make much of a difference.The pcv(crankcase breather) is also in a different position,alot lower than my early stock intake pipe also the diameter of the stock valve is a bit larger .I required a 30cm(probably 40/45 would be better) length of 19/20mm internal diameter and associated new jubilee clips to link to the original breather pipe,i also couldn't find any pipe joiners large enough for the job ,so i got some 20mm copper plumbing pipe and jubilee clips.Make sure you get the valve into the samco before you connect it up and it requires a bit of elbow greese and wd40.I'll post some pictures tommorrow so you can see what i've done.I may purchase the correct pcv pipe and valve if i can find the part numbers as this would be a slightly better solution but it all works fine so i'm happy,revo on monday!!!regards Ryan

    If it is lightened, then it will allow the engine to spin up faster.

    I'm wondering whether I should get a (Samco) hose fitted. My hose blew off twice when I was driving to Amsterdam on Friday - not fun when you're doing 130mph and suddenly the power goes and you have to make it across two crazy Dutch motorway lanes full of stoned psychotic truckers. The jubilee clip had loosened and needed re-tightening. I should have upgraded the hose when I got the car chipped I guess. Had to take it reasonably easy on the way back to Blighty, stayed in sixth most of the journey.

    Even a Samco hose would have blown off if the jubilee clip wasn't tight! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/lol.gif[/img]
