Have a Nice Day? Intercooler Hose Questions???

Hey Guys,

I just had a few questions. I have a 2006 Sti. So the problem I'm having is that the hose from my Throttle body the intercooler is toast. The clamp has dug into it and It needs replacing. Secondly, my car came with what I believe is a HKS SSQV BOV and I was looking to take it back to stock or make it a recirc.

---For the hose........I was having trouble on what to do. I was thinking on getting a complete intercooler hose kit, however I have read about fitment issues and the kits needing to be modded and I'm not sure on which to go with.

---For the BOV......... I found that the BOV can be made a BPV with a simple fitting and a hose that allow the recirculation. The problem is I'm not sure if my BOV is the correct one and also how it would go with a new hose kit. I there anyway to find which specifically I have? here is the link for the fitting and a hose needed I believe.

Hose for Recirc: http://www.hps-siliconehoses.com/hps...l#!prettyPhoto

Inlet for Recirc: http://www.hks-power.co.jp/en/usa/products/Pid=798.html





Some suggested to just replace the throttle body hose with whatever hose fits, but I don't know the specific size.


So anyways..... sorry for the super long post. Let me know with you guys think.

Thanks

That is so expensive... and he doesn't need it.
You can get silicone parts for much cheaper at frozenboost. All you have to do is measure, buy the parts you need and cut them to fit.

.....or you can buy the correct parts that are specifically made for that application. And $89 is not expensive what so ever.

It includes everything you need, the intercooler to TB hose, BPV recirc hose, and the hose for the turbo to intercooler and all necessary clamps.

He already has an sti, and only needs two hoses and 4 clamps. Not a y pipe.

and it's $99.

Buy whatever you want though, that would be convenient if you don't want to cut some hose.

Can you tell me more about what you mean by not needing a Y pipe for the STI?

Thanks for the replys, I was looking for convenience, but I was thinking I might have to buy the recirc hose separately since it the BOV inlet is a 1 1/8" and the hose is 1 1/4".

Do you guys thinking the kit is the best option even though I might need to get a seperate recirc hose? Or is there a way to possibly make it work with the grimspeed one?

Normally if someone throws a BOV on they just put a plug in the recirc hose. If that's how it is on your car you would see a 34mm hose with a plug in it right below the bov. However if there is no hose there, that hose comes with the grimmspeed kit. It's gonna be a PITA attaches the hose to the inlet though so be prepared. Putting the stock bpv is the best route, assuming the car is not tuned for an atmospheric bov. You can buy a used bpv for cheap on these forums and you get the grimmspeed intercooler hose kit and it will come with a new intercooler y pipe, throttle body hose, and bpv recirc hose.

$87 for the hose kit. Message one of the vendors on here and they will probably give you an even better deal.

He doesn't need the goddamn y pipe kit. He has a y pipe with 90 degree hose and it's stock so it's fitment is the best. I've tried other hoses. Nothing fits as good as stock.

OP, buy a stock used BPV on this forum. They go for around 20-30 shipped. Then measure your throttle body to intercooler hose and buy a silicone one on Ebay for less than $10. It's a straight coupler...get 4 ply. You don't need anything beyond that. If you also need a recirc hose, again try to find a stock one used on this forum. They fit the best.

Yes he doesn't NEED one bc he already has one but why not just ****ing replace it, if you've ever taken off the intercooler you know the stock one is piece of ahit plastic and a pain in the ass to get back on. I'd much rather lay out $87 which is ****ing pennies for a while kit and quality parts from a reputable dealer, not some eBay piece of ahit that you need to hack up in your driveway. Grimmspeed, good manufacturer, good product, good results, no ****ing cutting up hoses and everything will fit perfect an they will most likely last the entire time of the car . I'd rather lay out the extra $60 and get good parts. Not buy **** off of eBay. And if anyone recommends eBay, don't listen to them IMO

The reason he needs a new hose is because his clamp is digging into it and destroying it. Go with ebay and your gonna have the same problem in a matter of time. This is a no ****ing brainer. If $87 is "too expensive" you should not be modifying this car. End of story.

When I had a tmic my y pipe was metal, and it fit fine. no one said eBay, I have all frozenboost hoses which are at least 1/3 of the cost of other brands and are holding up fine. That website also sells t bolt clamps for way, way cheaper than elsewhere. Why buy unnecessary, overpriced parts?

First of all, it's not plastic. He has an STI which has a METAL y pipe just like that overpriced GS pipe you're trying to sell him. Second, you CAN'T BEAT STOCK FITMENT. If you think you can, you're wrong. Third, he's not even asking about the *****ing y pipe. His original post stated he needs a new TB to TMIC coupler. That is a STRAIGHT, ROUND and SHORT coupler. A 4 or 5 ply silicone is 100% fine. What do you think the GS kit includes??? A 4 or 5 ply silicone. There are a million vendors who SELL these on Ebay for cheap. Ebay doesn't manufacture anything. You are a complete moron if you think you cannot BUY from Ebay because only **** parts appear for sale on Ebay. That makes no sense at all. Keep wasting your money and giving bad advice dude... no, really.

Don't pay attention to this irritated idiots in your thread. Your local auto parts store should be able to get you a silicone coupler. A generic one or even a vibrant will do just fine

Hey guys, so I finally have some money and I was thinking in replacing all the hoses with an entirely new IC hose kit. I was also going to buy the necessary hose and fitting to make my BOV a BPV.

I like the grimmspeed kit, but is there any other options when looking for the IC hose kit?

the only other that I found is the SAMCO kit, but I heard that there is sometimes problems getting the correct kit to fit.

Edit: also I would cut my own if it didn't seem like such a PITA haha.
