Because there is an arse load of work to remove that line. You have to remove the intake manifold etc.. not an easy job. In the mean time, the left over line isnt hurting anything.

I'll see if I can chop it off further back so it is not visible. Left over lines with nothing on them are a quick way to fail visual on smog. Not that I have to worry about that now, but I'm also a little nitpicky about the cleanliness of the engine bay and a hacked line doesn't sit well with me.

Thanks.

ah you have are issue. Well once you know where to get the T fitting from it's simple just bring the line with you there and match it up. You Probably need a T fitting with the same size thread all the way around I think that's what we need for bbong's car.

ya i think we need the same part. a "T" with one end that has the same threads as the stock piece where adapters add on with turbos from FP, Blouch ect. im sure one of them could tell us what threads are on the stock one. does the UR kit have the pill in the actual line? or is it like mine where it screws into the turbo then the line attatches to it (2 males ends on the "pill")

the blouch "pill" is a 1/4" inverted male flare with 4 AN thread on the side sticking up. so i need to adjust my parts list to have a line with 2 female 4 AN fittings (one end to "T" one end to turbo adapter/male flare) instead of the stock banjo fitting used here. Mike told me he dosent know what the thread is on the stock line but that they had to source out custom fabrication of that part.

correction: i should be able to just not use the 10MM banjo fitting and instead hook it directly to the fitting on the turbo. we shall see soon, parts were ordered last week.

great write-up, I have the same issue. Subaru wouldn't cover it under warranty, so now i have to replace the line.


The dealer said it would take like 6 hours to complete, and require the removal of the exhaust manifold. How long did the install take?
