Sorry for the slight hijack but had a look at mine today and noticed it doesn't have any returns on it like stated in the image below as well as being plastic with cable ties (no wonder the hosing fell off)



Out of curiosity are people just using modified windscreen washer components or are there metal aftermarket pieces available?

Auto One was mentioned in your thread RD, just go and source what I'm looking for there?

Images of t-pieces people are using would be fantastic.

(would like something in metal similar to the above so I can use hose clamps and give the hosing a chance of staying on)

Cheers,

its in the right place so it can read manifold vacuum and boost, if its not boosting high enough its probly got something to do witth your boost tee or you have a leak in your boost gauge vacuum line so its not reading accuratly.
