    Does anyone know?

    Hi all i just had my car up on a ramp quickly to check for an exhaust leak because i noticed my car sounds a bit blowly, but could not see anything underneath, will check again at weekend beacuse something is not right,

    But i was having a good look underneath and i noticed that the black metal thick pipe what has an intercooler each end, If your standing underneath the car the drivers side of the pipe has another bit of pipe like a smaller diameter stubby bit which looked like it is capped off,

    This pipe which joins the main intercooler pipe on the weld had like a PEA SIZED HOLE, but looked quite a neat hole is this meant to be there, i thought that the pipes in had to be air tight etc? If not it could exaplin a few things, sorry for the essay hope it makes sense, thansk Oski
