    Hi everyone. I need to replace my crankcase breather pipe as it is really soft and flat and I think this may be the reason why im slightly down on boost lately. I heard that you can buy silicone replacements from somewwere but cant find them anywhere.

    Does anyone know where I can get a blue silicone crankcase breather pipe from please.

    Thanks Nathan

    Nar I wouldnt know the size for them. You could ring Forge and ask them as they sell them.

    My breather pipes are the same Nattie, especially the one going to the tip, don't think these breather pipes effect boost though. Mines pretty much squashed but it still boosts 19psi. Iirc, on boost the flow in these beather pipes actually goes in the direction of the rocker cover so they don't collapse on boost they actually swell up lol might be wrong, Badger will know for sure

    Thanks for the info. Mine used to be quite squashed before but now it sort of began to fold on itself so do want to replace it with a silicone pipe.

    I think I got a boost leak somewhere and wants to replace this before I go searching for splits.

    I'm not sure if you can, maybe you could give forge a call and see if they can maybe make it if they don't already, i'm sure they'd be quite a few people willing to buy a set of silicone breather hoses for this engine, i have enquired at Awesome and they only do it for the 150-180bhp 1.8t engines

    Think your right as I can find loads for 1.8T but none for S3. I think I may try make my own up.
