Hi
Ok see if this works, I do miss being a member.




you will see the new one (black) the pipe will go face to face with the turbo and the seal only goes around the outside.
Also I fitted this one to an 05 under warranty for an oil leak that I had already change the pipe before to try and fix this issue.

Where can we get that in the states? How much work is it to install?

Thanks Merlin,
where does this oil go?

Could this excess oil be what I smell burning off when after heavy use (climbing up or down mountain side) then stopping for break, leaving engine running.
This seems to be only time when smell occurs.

Hi
0.3 to fit (1 bolt 2 clips) part number 53013672AE if you have an orange seal it's the old pipe black new pipe. The oil is most likely what you smell, see my swirl motor post to see the oil mess burning this leek makes. The oil will then go into the intake so still not good but better then a swirl motor.
Regards,
Merlin

So guys, Im kind of confused. Does this replace the racors that some have been installing from the access oil? Is the new black tube supposed to fix the oil leaking problem?

As I understand, the new seal & air intake tube design just fixes the issue of the blow by oil seeping out of the connection where the air intake tube fits onto the turbo. But "Blow By" vapors/oil from the crankcase still move from the passenger side valve cover, thru the black round PCV valve, and thru the black hose that joins the air intake tube right in front of the turbo. The blow by gases (oil/water/fuel vapor) still get sucked into the intake and then into the turbo. Still a bad thing as I understand it, it now just doesn't leak out all over the engine. The CCV filter system is still needed to eliminate the blow by oil/vapor from re-entering the engine...

Correct me if I'm wrong. I'm not a tech. I just pose as one on the internet...

I would agree. I just installed a Racor and I certainly won't remove the Racor just because of this new intake tube because I'd rather not have any oil in my intercooler and intake, but thats just me.

Merlin will this new part be identified in a TSB? or will be a recall? or neither?

I see, so is the new tube even worth getting if you have the Racor installed already?

a tight seal is always good, but I wouldn't pay for it. if I see a TSB with the parts and instructions, I will take it to my dealer and have them install under warranty.
