Where Can I Get Cam Cover Breather Pipes?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I've searched here, google and eBay looking for the black pipe/hose going from one cam cover to the other on an R34 RB25det. Happy to buy even a universal silicon hose piece but seem to find that either. Guess I'll try a bit harder but in the mean time does anyone have a source for these? Would heater hose be ok for now? (mines gone rockhard and split really bad)

Any hose store?? Theoretically heater hose 'should' be ok, as it's mostly air with just a bit of vapour. But really you should get some proper oil control hose. I get mine from Hoseco. Otherwise Enzed, Pirtek, etc. etc.

Just go in and ask for 5/8 oil control hose.

heater hose wont work as the vapours going out of the rocker covers are hot and the hose will crap itself, as the hose is shaped your best bet is to get one from nissan,or you COULD get one from hoseco but you may have to buy a metre of it unless they have some leftover off cuts

Heater hose will work as a temporary solution is what I meant.

You don't need to use the formed hose, you can rotate the breather to suit any hose. No point paying out the ass for pre-shaped hose. You can also buy half meters from Hoseco. At $18 a meter it's not too bad.

So is Siicon hose suitable for this? I can get the piece i need from Nizzbits for $35 delivered so I can use silicon and get it for 18 a meter like u said. Although I do like fitting genuine parts where I can.

go the genuine part if you can, the hose you can get from hoseco may or may not posses the heat resistance that you need. . .as a GUIDE i paid $18 for a breather (from rocker cover to rocker cover) hose for a R32 RB20DET from NISSAN. . .yes you can use heater hose as a very temp repair but why not fix it properly the first time?

whats wrong with heater hose? ive had it on my 34 for about 4 months now since i noticed the old one had split and i cant say ive seen any ill affects at all, ive taken it on and off half a dozen times since then as well, never had any troubles or noticed any wear or anything.

    • VP race fuel like VP 109 ron unleaded is a waste of money compared to E85. Just go flex fuel setup so you can run on pump unleaded or E85 all without draining tanks or switching tunes. You go VP race fuel you will have to change tune when using it, then change back to a pump unleaded tune. VP109 for example will support about the same boost and timing increaes as E85, but it requires the afr's to be a lot leaner than E85 but richer than pump unleaded.
    • Whats your budget? Maybe call Nispro in QLD for quote - they build a lot of VQ and have a turbo kit in development - but id say at least 20k to do it right - oh actually maybe do LS swap will be cheaper but....hmm  im a purist - so id rather stick to VQ35DE or whats the point lol.... just my opinion - do what u want. its your car  
    • Ok sorry I should rephase my question. But good answer haha.  How can I make 400whp that isn't using nitrous. 
    • dyno run would be on VP race fuel or e85 / e98, E85 is not easily accessible by me. Closest pump is 30 min in a direction I do not travel. So while I will go out to get it. It will also get pump gas 93 octane is highest avilable in US so overall power will be down if mix fuels  e50, e30, e10 ect 
    • Cheapest way? Spray. A wet kit with 200hp jets could be up and running for less then $2000. Then its about $16 per pound when its time to refill your bottle.
