CAC discharge tube worn through by air filter

Anyone seen this before? The air filter rubbed on the cac discharge tube and wore a hole in it. I'm wondering if this tube is always under pressure from the turbo, or is it under a vacuum at idle conditions when the turbo isn't cranked up? If there is a vacuum under some conditions, then this hole would draw in some unfiltered air... it's pretty tiny, but over time it could have an impact.

I did a little plastic welding and coated it in silicone for now, I will probably get a new tube to be safe... sounds like good justification for some new aftermarket induction parts!! ;-)

Anybody else ever have this problem?

Dont patch it that will never hold up to the vacume created by the turbo. Only full prrof way to fix it is to put on a cold air intake and a turbo back exhaust. A bigger turbo, new intercooler, big mouth intake, chip and injectors would also make it more reliable.

that's awesome! I wonder if that new turbo will pull more vacuum than the last one?
