    Question hole in itg silicone hose?

    had a look today because intake sounded weird and i found that there is a hole on the 90° itg hose made by one connector near the battery box. what should i do? can i order only that part? or maybe fix it with something? would it affect on performance?

    i'm already booked for oil change service tomorrow and for HPFP, rs4 FPR and Revo stage 2+ day after so need that fixed ASAP!

    when i did fit the intake i've tried to make as much clearance as possible so it wouldn't happen but seems that engine moves a lot. it wasn't actually that frame that sticks out the problem but the end of the connector. think i'll use some patch and glue.. annoying.

    The thread was started by me. I had the same issue. Fixed with a bike tube repair patch, bit of hard foam then some gaffa tape. Also put 2 extra jubile clips to keep the hose pulled down on the alloy tube and out of the way of the connector.
