Need some help!!!
« on: 20:11, Wed 09 March 2011 »
I need some help!! I have got a pipe comin off the carb and it don't run to anything! 1 runs off the card to the actuator on the turbo but there is nothin comin off the other side of actuator (hose). Am I ment to have a hose on both sides that run to the carb?

If possible could someone put up a diagram or pics so I can take a look?

Thanks for your help

Having the actuator port towards the rear of the car left open is quite common, have a search for the 'cup mod'

Also the pipe that leads to nowhere on the carb is normal, this is a failsafe and should something internal go wrong with the carb then any fuel will escape from that pipe, make sure it's away from anything hot. This is the port thats closest to the passenger side and it points to the rocker cover btw.

Is there any piping connected to it?

I have mine run down past the gearbox, away from the manifold and turbo etc.

There is a pipe running from the carb to 1 side of the actuator then the pipe closest the rocker cover does down by the gear box, not connected the other end!

It's an overflow pipe it's there just in case the gasket splits and it is supposed to go to air down the front of the engine
