    Hey Folks,

    I'm having a very hard time finding the following hoses.

    1. 118231 - Air Injection System (TAV 9) - 20mm ID / 30 inches length
    2. 118959 - Blow-by System (TAV 19) - 22mm ID / 38.5 inches length

    Both of these hoses are nylon braided hoses. Please let me know of a good source.

    Also, I'm wondering if I can replace the following hoses with silicon vaccuum hoses.

    1. 107982 - Air Intake & Manifolds (TAV 15) - 12mm ID
    2. 128305 - Air Intake & Manifolds (TAV 15) - 3.5mm ID

    Thanks,
    Tom

    Tom, if you find a source for these, please post it here. BTW, how did you obtain their corresponding length and ID?

    I had a hard time finding those hoses a while ago. I found them bulk in a heavy truck parts shop, they usually have bigger diameter hoses than most places. You will have to cut them to the right size, but that's all.

    In order to obtain the lengths... I took the orginally hoses and flatted them out straight and then measured with measuring tape. To obtain the ID... I actually measured the connecting metal pipe O.D. with a caliper. The true I.D. would be a bit smaller (-.5mm to -1mm) to ensure a tight fit.

    Also, I'm documenting all these hose specification along with resources I've used (pricing too) and putting them into a spreadsheet. I'll post all my information here later.
