Power loss

I would not glue it,then what do you do when you have to remove it next time? maybe a clip made for exhaust systems (not the U-bolt type tho.) Presumably you're thinking of the Mikalor type clips ? http://www.mikalor.com/img/src/productosGr/AB%20SUPRA%20W2.jpg That's what I've got but won't be able...

Power loss

The pipe you're referring to, with orange seal, fits over the turbo outlet, which normally has a fixing lip at end. The standard clip uses a 6mm bolt that requires quite some tightening to compress the metal lips of the air tube. Much more compression than using eg a standard clip. That could be yo...

Power loss

I think it might be time for a picture as you mentioned an intercooler? The original crossover pipe is reasonably well located as it just goes from the turbo straight to the throttle body so doesn't get the opportunity to move much anyway.. Hi Phil , don't think I mentioned an intercooler ,the pipe...

Power loss

The good news is I've fitted back the pipe with the new orange gasket and it's definitely the cause of the power loss ,the bad news is I can't clip it on to stay for very long it blows off very quickly ,I believe the original pipe had a clip spot welded on the turbo end this seems to be missing from...

Power loss

Getting the pipe and new orange gasket fitted is proving tricky is there any trick to getting it lined up at both ends or is it just trial and error :D You get used to it! Put some silicone grease (or washing up liquid) on the inside of the orange seal - that makes it slip over turbo air output mor...

Power loss

Checked the seal the Orange one and it doesn't seem to be sitting right underneath and there are some small splits on the edge so I've just ordered a new one ,fingers crossed it's the culprit.

Have you popped the bonnet to check if a boost hose has come off or split? Thanks for the reply yes I've had look and tried to see if anything is obvious on the boost hose I'm supposing you mean the grey pipe with the rubber on the end and it was very firm on the injection end but not so firm on th...

thank you. the coil packs on the 3.2 are integral per cylinder bank. Three in a row and joined up into one piece, that you push in to all three spark plug housings. They are genuine oem (bosch), but that might be the problem as they are probably as old as the engine, 10 years plus. The first instan...
