So im doing the vf39 swap and messed up my oil feed line to the turbo which has led me to removing my intake manifold (fml).
Which has lead me to the turbo inlet, should i swap it out? It does look like it had some blow by. So If so what brand best bang for the buck. I have the full samco kit for the vf39, really like that brand? Thanks in advance

I used a gimmick inlet which is very similar. Couple words of advice- make sure to have a spare set of hands to assist in putting the manifold back on and take your time. You may consider deleting the tgv's while you have the manifold off. Also be careful not to bend/damage the fuel rails.

I had the avo turbo inlet. Served its purpose, but fitment was *****. Can't reuse stock bpv return hose so had to run a bov, which really bugged me. But If u don't mind that, its less expensive.

if I may.. The samco piece is legit! I use a gimmick now, since I didnt have to change anything , stock slip in and all, Only got the GMS because it was a freebie, love the AMR solid too, just easier to get the silicone ones in,
