    I'm curious if there is any advantage to an aluminium elbow over the forge silicone one? Are they at all flexible? As it is a softer material I wonder if it doesn't transmit as much vibration though the brake servo if they do touch?

    I just wasn't keen on replacing an OEM ally part with a silicone one. The Unitronic also retains the OEM bolts which helps reduce the risk of them coming loose which other products have suffered.

    A lot of messing about to try get a part work that was never designed to fit a rhd car

    Kudos for the psa, best stick with forge or if you’re anti silicone, spring for the eventuri

    No problems here.......

    The Forge isn’t without its issues.

    Exactly. Forge has been known to collapse under vacuum. I know of two cars suffered this and I actually requested the design changed and was. I know of Eventuri issues also..

    End of the day its a tight space and some tweaking is required. I defo think dogbone upgrade or insert is a good call to reduce engine movement.

    Exactly this.

    The space is incredibly tight, fit the Unitronic correct and there are Zero issues.
