Need a temporary intake tube - will silicone tubing work?
I didn't like the path of the steel tube running to my throttle body from the intercooler. Well, I cut it, and was getting ready to TIG it, when my welding helmet stopped working. It's an auto-dimming helmet that cost $250 bucks. I sent it back to the manufacturer for warranty repair, but it is going to be gone a couple of weeks. yeah, I know, get a cheap helmet. Well, once you use an automatic one, it's tough to go back.
Anyway - I am a fine frog hair away from getting the car started. Will a piece of silicone hose work in place of the steel pipe? I can't think of why it wouldn't, but then I'm not very smart. Thanks.
