1 turbo to intercooler gasket on 5th August 2013, 8:09 pm

Anyone know where I can get the gasket that goes from the turbo to the pipework on fmic? Got air escaping from somewhere when on boost and I think this gasket could be the problem

Cant really remember what brand/type it is, been on the car since I bought it 4years ago. If replacing this gasket doesnt cure my problem then the intercooler will be the next thing to try

Silicone joiners where it goes through the inner wings or pipework where the bumper/brake ducts are can wear away worth a check .

Cant really see anything obvious around any joints or any pipework, unless its the intercooler itself. Just need to replace this gasket first and go from there, thats if I can get the gasket haha

Yeah I seen all the gaskets on ebay, they look as though they are the same but the description suggests their not. Think I will have to just make one up like bob says
