    Turbo Hose And Tip Removal!

    Whats the best way to get to the turbo to remove the turbo hose and the tip?
    Just had the strut brace off but was towing like hell to get to where the turbo hose and tip connect to the turbo.
    Would it be best to remove the airbox and go in that way?

    well, getting under the car would be easier. There no need to remove the turbo

    Didnt think you'd be able to get to it, so would it be best to jack the drivers side up then, would that allow me to get to the turbo hose aswell!

    I removed the air box to do mine, not difficult and saves loads of time and hassle. That was on my car of course, not sure is non ESP cars are that much different.

    IIRC you unscrew the top of the air box (as if changing the filter) making sure you have undo the TIP from the MAF. There are a couple of 10mm bolts holding the bottom half of the airbox on then there is loads of room to get your hand in (from the top) to the jubilee clip holding the TIP to the turbo.

    What difference does the addition of the new TIP make out of interest?

    Might consider changing mine (stage one car)

    Just more free flowing and is ment to allow more air tobe pulled through by the turbo and looks cool haha.

    Why would Jabbasport have told me that all a new TIP would give me is a lighter wallet?

    I assume it makes more difference on a mapped car than stock. I'm tempted!

    na the only reason that most assume is due to the forge vid of one collapsing on a TT under load......thing is there was several redesigned OEM TIP's and mine for one was stronger than my silicone one.... i wouldnt pay full price for silicone jobby based on that fact (and i didnt)

    Car made a bit more of a whoosh noise and thats all i can recall looking back,...... although the one i replaced had slight corrosion that would have caused an issue down the line

    just removed the engine plastic cover..... and took it all to pieces from the top mate.... the hardest bit is undoing and retightening the TIP onto the turbo, if you get a small wrench with the right size bit you can feel around and sort it easy enough.... its a bit tiring on the backs of ya legs and your guaranteed to be walking funny for the following hour or so, but really is that simple
