    SAMCO

    Hi All
    Have bought a new throttle body boot & F hose as preventative maintenance (and part of the continual, gradual bit-by-bit upgrading) on my 2000 S4.
    They came without clips. Can I simply pop off the OE items and use whatever clips they were fitted with, or do I need to source specific ones for the Samco bits?

    Also anyone with a good straight clean unscuffed OE Avus spare they want to get rid of, please pm me. Cambridge/Suffolk.

    Thanks a lot

    I would do an FHose/N249 delete when its all apart, rather than fitting the silicon Fhose.

    I think its just jubilee clips on the TBB, F hose might have those single use clamps though so you'll need some suitably sized jubilees for that.

    You might find that you need to trim the top of the TBB down.

    Some of the Samco TBB's seem to have an oversized tube which the MAP sensor fits in. If it's too long, you won't be able to get your front engine cover back on.

    Just make sure you don't trim it down so much that you can't get a clip on to hold the MAP sensor in place!

    i'll have to email them as the only have unversal parts i cant see no tbb

    it would be just as easy to go get some stainless exhaust tubing off cuts for free from the garage up the road and weld together a y-piece and use some hose connector sleeves and jubilee clips it would never tear or collapse then would it
