Broke something

So I got my HPX line from Riffraff installed but in the process I broke off a plastic thread when I put the intake manifold back on. Its the green line that goes with the red line off the wastegate actuator that plugs into the lower right of the manifold before it goes into the intake plenums and on the other end it connects inside the air intake plumbing between the turbo and the ccv.Broke something-1369085935235.jpgBroke something-1369085951699.jpgBroke something-1369085968535.jpgBroke something-1369085988878.jpg Anybody know what that's called?

Here's where it connects between the ccv and Turbo. Oh and to top it off I need new intercooler boots on I have a tear on the passenger side. Guess its time to order from riffraff. I also think I may go back to the stock intake manifold. I noticed the cfm peeling on the composite side

I notice on Riffraff's OEM replacement section the Ford turbo inlet hose has no port for this green line. I do have a boost guage. Haven't taken it for a run since this broke off but I will post up results when I go on an interstate run and spool the turbo a little more.

I lied the green line splices off the red wastegate line. Now I just have a stripped off thread in that port on the cfm manifold. Gonna change back to stock manifold I think and try to fix the wire

My bad for the wasted thread boys. I'm uninstalling the cfm manifold and reinstalling a color matched stocker with my same aih delete plug. The cfm doesn't grab the boots well on the composite material going into the plenums and I believe wont last as long as the stock one.

i think that red line is just telling the computer when the wastegate is releasing?
most people unplug that line from the wastegate anyways.

Yep it is. I got it all buttoned up and swapped my manifold back to stock. The CFM+ was actually peeling on the composite side. Not impressed after only about 1yr of use. Figure my stock one with aih plug flows just as well. Got the hpx line installed as well. Gotta replace my cold side boot to the manifold it has a tear.....riffraff time!

man thats a bummer the cfm one started coming apart. for 400 bones you think it would be a good product.
ya i always wondered the performance gain for an aftermarket manifold. but i deleted the AIH so i figured its prob the same.

ps. what kinda paint did you use on the manifold? i wanna paint the intercooler pipes and manifold blue someday

oh and i like my riffraff boots. they look good and they are holding together well. plus good price
and riffraff is only a little way up into oregon so i get whatever i order pretty damn quick.
