Default EJ20 V1/V2 Turbo Inlet Solutions

My turbo inlet hose is cracking, and the research I've done shows that they basically aren't available any more. There was at one point a Sard silicone option, which is now discontinued. I've seen ideas that using an Evo X aftermarket might be worked in somehow. I'm wondering if anyone has done this, or if there is a more straightforward solution, possibly with fabrication? Anyone have any pointers or experience in this area?

I think it's possible to change the compressor cover and go under manifold intake ~ I'm not sure on what else is needed to be done though

I don't think that will work for the V1/V2 vehicles. The turbo inlet seems to be part of the turbo, which would prevent that.


Additionally I'm not sure the plumbing would work so well in my case due to IC piping.

Make your own using ebay silicone elbows. Measure the sizes and order. I replace my resonator as well with a piece of exhaust pipe with nipples welded on. See some pics of my setup in this thread.

Oh, and to make it front entry, it can be done but you need a lot: front inlet turbo cover, inlet, manifold spacers and newage PS pump.

Thanks for the link to your solution. My resonator is already a fake (solid pipe through it - just left it to look more stock). I think I will end up doing something similar to that, but maybe weld fittings into a metal 90-degree bend. I like the idea of the bypass valve exhausting as close to the turbo inlet as possible... Just not sure I'm that good of a fabricator ;-)

Turbo inlet is the compressor cover (that you can change)

My initial designs were made with an angle grinder, drill, and JB weld and it held fine. No fancy fab skills needed.

These inlets btw can be had off the UK ebay site and most of them are willing to ship to the US if you ask.

I'd suggest this as a temporary solution as I'm sure it would crack again. I've had no issues with my silicone elbows thus far.

Samco makes replacement hoses for both JDM and EUDM inlets (different number of nipples). I'm running their inlet kit on my V1 EJ20G.
