Filetr to throttle body pipe?



  • Recently put an intake air filter in place of the standard box and noticed a small crack in the corregated part of the pipe leading from the throttle body, had it checked at my local garage and they said it would'nt do any harm so i have wrpped it in duck tape until i find a replacement.

    Anyone know where i could get one? I tried all my local scrap yards and auto shops but nothing doing….. I would be up for putting one together myself if anyone has done this can you let me know?



  • Hello James you'd be suprised how often members get this, it does cause an issues but taping it up will suffice for now, as for a replacement its a hunting job and waiting until one pops up..
    if your as you say using an after market filter can i presume its a cone one then check out Jay mx3 work log at his conversion for this …

  • as for replacements its mazda only part - £80 :evil: :evil:

    For an extra £20-30 you can get a mutts nuts induction kit for that

    MX6 is different, I have checked because I found a shop in america that does replacement MX6 pipes and he also confirmed they are different



  • the convertion is easyer than it looks if you like i can pm you all the bits you need to do it and will give you any advise if needed
    i had a split pipe when i went to jap fest ( 170miles for me) so i put this together on the stand hense the cable ties but on the jurney home it saved me over £15 of fuel so well worth doing
    the total cost for pipeing was 80 bit it was for decent quality
    hope this helps



  • think probestore.co.uk is £50 something quid for a new part.
