BPM Turbo Inlet Hose
I recently ordered and replaced my turbo inlet hose with a BPM. It's a nice inlet hose I might say, AND the customer service is awesome. NOW, I have an 07 WRX and was under the assumption (and told) that the piece would fit no problem. First issue I had was the the end that fits to the turbo does not line up very well (small kink in the tube) and second of all the vacuum hose closest to the turbo (the metal nipple if you must) is not plug and play. The hose that is on my car has a clip (wiring) on it and the BPM does not. So I had to fab something up (had to pull an idea out of my arse). Now, I don't know what this plug IS, but figure it is just an oil tube of some sort and didn't want to throw a CEL by ripping it out. Anyone know what it is/what it does and a fix for this. A small issue I had as well is that it will not fit / mate up to the Samco after MAF hose OR the stock hose. (Weird to be nice about it). Lucky for me I have an SPT SRI and heatshield on the way. BTW, you don't NEED to take off the manifold, but need to take off the radiator return container to the left of the manifold to make it easier.
I am not bashing anyone as I will be working with Nate to fix the issues.
