the $5 SPFI hose
Posted 20 September 2003 - 07:55 PM
Went right on, tightened her down with the hose clamp that was already on hose, and presto.
At the end, I didn't get an air box, but I just put a 4" chrome deep dish air filter assembly on there. Now I have my PCV system hooked back up on it, and it looks kinda cool with this "Subaru FI" thing on top of my hitachi. Now I don't get the whispy sound of the carb sucking in air, and I don't have that small leak I didn't notice before. coolio.
Maybe some day I can grab pictures.
PS: Engine sounds better, I actually have power above 5k now, and I think that's due to the small leak I had before.

Would you believe that that is a $320 hose?
Originally posted by JonOfScio I paid $5 at Turner PAP for the top hose from an SPFI EA82 (bolts onto throttle body)
I know, because it's common for them to crack, both at the outline of the cast-in "SPFI" rectangular logo border, and around the PCV and IAC "nipples". I had both cracks. I carefully black-RTV'd mine a couple of weeks ago.

I'll probably re-direct it and put a cone filter on it later. yeah.

The 4 barrel from an RX7 is supposed to be a hitachi basically jetted the same but only four barrels (it's something like two of ours put together) and i looked for it, but the car that came with it had it taken out.
I guess I'm still going for the weber .32/36
