Hi guys,

I discovered that the 90degree pipe that goes from the turbo to the air filter is cracked - due to the heat it Brock into two pieces.
I was overwhelmed by the price of a new OME part - 250$!!! for this rubber pipe.
since I did not find a replacement part, i did something better.
I did it from Aluminum, but it can be done from plane steel - build a pipe that goes from 62mm to 52mm with a exit pipe for the oil breather and bought a quality 90degree silicon pipe to connect the two ends.
It works beautifully, it is much more reliable and cheaper by 70%...
Pics soon.
