Default Dumb question about the turbo inlet

So I bought a used turbo inlet, and I noticed that the hole where you connect the bpv hose doesn't have that metal fitting in it.

Could I connect the bpv hose without that metal fitting? I'd rather ask before I attempt to wrestle out the stock inlet and then not be able to install the new one.

The answer is NO.

You either need the metal fitting or come up with a way to replace that fitting using either metal or PVC.

Maybe a piece of copper pipe.

Home Depot, lowes, or any hardware store is your best friend in this scenario.
Buy a fitting at any of these stores that fits your liking.

That's what I was thinking, well off to Google to find the size of the fitting

Thanks

Just measure the ID of the BOV hose and or the inlet where the BOV connects. It's that simple. You want something a shade / smidge larger so you have a tight fit.

I found a 1" copper pipe at home Depot. It barely fits in the hose, and I bought a clamp just in case to hold it in.

Thanks

Make sure you round off the edges smooth so you don't cut yourself or the turbo inlet/BOV hose when inserting.

Take the length of the turbo inlet connection and at least double that length to use as your connector. You want to make sure the connector you make is long enough to clamp securely on both ends s it stays in place

If too hard to push in, use a little soapy water as a lubricant.
