alexx933 posted a topic in Turbo / SuperchargerI have some major boost leak going on due to having a huge tear (about an inch long and then another inch long tear going 90*) in what looks like the original 81 connector from the turbo to the j-pipe. My local auto store had some specifically turbo hose that is seriously thick. It is about the right diameter but slightly too small. Even submerging this turbo hose in boiling water for minutes at a time won't allow the hose to be pliable enough to slip on. That part sucks because this hose is $3 per inch!! So I had to put the torn coupler back on. I have seen a lot of silicone couplers being used in numerous threads and was wondering if they hold up to the heat. My main concern isn't intercooler piping as much as it is proximity to the turbo. I'm sure my hands are not the only ones to have been burnt while working close to the turbo. I don't want to buy a silicone coupler and have it go out on me while I'm driving down the road. Any feedback, links to threads, or suggestions to finding my answer would be appreciated! Alex
