    little one goes after your MAP sensor at the front of the engine, if you don't have a map sensor then you don't need it

    The small straight one bout an inch or two long is for the sensor on the air intake on later TD4s. They should all be the right length, certainly my kit from there was. If you purchased the 5 piece kit and you dont have a sensor then the air intake hose might be too long or short.

    Odd. My 5 piece were perfect. My issue was with the T bolt clamps as they all seemed too big, but they were just about perfect. Just need to tighten them right down.

    I doubt they're too long, just make sure they're pushed on far enough!

    mine seem to be leaking a tiny bit as there is residue all over them I have checked the clips and they are tight. I will have to have a steam clean.

    Yep. It's very fiddly and takes a long time. Persevere.

    Did you have to take of the front bumper etc to get to that one? At first i thought i may get to it from above if i unplugged the small thin hose above it but don't think that will work now as the bolt is facing the wrong way for me to get at it.

    hi

    was there one where the plastic part of the engine was removed and extra hoses, pipes etc were fitted

    wondering as the plastic is narrow in certain parts as to whether it would help the engine breath a bit better or make no difference

    mines a td4 and been thinking of doing the silocone hoses but also thinking of removing the plastic unit and adding the extra hoses and pipes in

    thks guys and hope u didn't mind me pinching the post abit

    Nobody does a kit to remove the air inlet side, but one of the guys on here made his own along with fitting a massive intercooler. Don't remember his name.
