    hmm not on either on those.

    its 50 odd quid from stealer seems a bit excessive.

    i bought the boost kit from ebay (not this one but i cant get on ebay at work. same pipes though) but i dont think that pipe is in there.

    the valve is a one way valve for the brake vacum im sure the piping you could just get any silicone piping all you would need is the one way brake vacum valve, can i ask why you need this as you already have it on your car.

    it works ok but its a bit soft when it gets hot and braking becomes less sharp. my mechanic said because its quite soft after intense breaking it kinda collapses and braking becomes less effective. wanted a stronger permanent solution to my current bodge. Especially since its brake vacuum

    Yeh its the vacuum feed to the servo, the original line is hard plastic to stop it collapsing, large bore silicone hose will just flatten unless its properly reinforced, and i guess yours isnt.

    If you dont want to spend the 50quid, then get some properly reinforced hose and use that instead. High pressure fuel hose will probably do the job.
