Thumbs up Solution for the 90 degree elbow to the charge relief valve!

Hey guys -

One of the guys here recently swapped out his turbos and had the 90 degree rubber hose that goes from the Y pipe to the charge relief valve break and crumble during the swapout. It's not out of the ordinary, that part sees a LOT of heat from the downpipe and just falls apart.

The stock part number is n3a1-13-765 and it should be about $12 or so from Ray.

I've replaced mine in the past, had it harden, and had to replace it AGAIN. Bleh.

Well, found this -

Amazon.com: HPS (HTSEC90-075-BLK) Black 3/4" 90 Elbow Silicone Hose Coupler: Automotive Amazon.com: HPS (HTSEC90-075-BLK) Black 3/4" 90 Elbow Silicone Hose Coupler: Automotive


It's part number HTSEC90-075-BLK, it's a 90 degree 3/4"/19mm ID black silicone hose. From Amazon it's just shy of $19 with free shipping if you have Prime. It's also available from tons of other places, Google the part number.

First impressions are good, the hose fits VERY snugly on the stock Y-pipe nipple. The hose is WAY long, but that could easily be cut down. Good part is when you cut it down you'll have extra silicone lenghts that could be used for other parts - the hose to the stock BOV, or the hose going to the intake.

It's very thick wall and reinforced.

I would get some Norma Torro hose clamps to go along with it. McMaster-Carr part number 5076K15, $8.46 for a pack of 10. If you haven't used N-T hose clamps, they are GREAT. Tighten super snug, all stainless, and don't cut into silicone hose. I have all my IC piping and intake plumbing done with them. Reasonably priced, too.

One last tip - to evenly cut silicone hose, put a hose clamp around the hose and snug it down. Run a razor knife or razor blade along the hose clamp, using it as a guide to keep your cut straight. Beats the hell out of a ragged nasty cut.

The best solution is to go single turbo.

OK, you asked for it, you got it. Pics!

So far so good, fits perfectly, works perfectly.

I also ordered the 45 degree version of the hose for the hose going from the Efini Y-pipe to the blowoff valve. If you have the original Y-pipe, another 90 degree hose would do the trick there.

Thanks for this. Mine isn't leaking or cracked, but I know it's harder than a *****'s heart and I'm probably on borrowed time.
