I don't know the ID on those lines. I have given a couple of these out to different members on here in the past.

They do have to be a specific size for the pill to work correctly.

With a 3port BCS... that whole portion is taken off (reason for a tune).

Hope this helps.

Know what? Go get it from the dealer... takes the guess work out of the equation.

The pill is like $1.68 and the lines can't be more than $10-$12

Hey got caught up with work ... didnt have time to reply...
but anyways I did a quick test I installed a MBC (i know i know just temporary)
just to see if I would get some boost and I did
14-16 yikes, i tried a couple of times from 3rd gear and it would boost 14, 15, 16 unstable the last try I drove it, boosted 15 but it would drop slowly to 11-10 (obvious leak) but I fixed it... I dont have the mbc installed anymore...

I think this car was tune and previous owner either had a MBC before and installed the bcs back or the BCS is just damaged .. regardless Im gonna borrow my friends BCS ... !Cry!


sorry newbie here

thanks advance

Maybe be different for older models, but to get the little hose from the turbo to T fitting, T fitting, hose from T fitting to WGA, and the two pills in those lines, it was $44 plus tax from subaru.

Also I bought this car with a stage 2 tune on it, and it only got 10-11 PSI, found the hose from the turbo to the T fitting was split, got a quick fix hose from autozone, it was slightly too big and that little gap next to the pill kept me at 12-13 PSI, once the replacement hoses/pills came it I started getting full boost.

Earlier models only have 1 pill...., but since you didn't pick me I am not going to tell you what I was going to say before....
