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.

    • So….. I’ve replaced all the coils and made sure I have a spark by fitting a spark plug to one of the new coils and cranking the engine. I’ve ensured I have fuel by removing what I assume is the ‘return to tank’ fuel line and cranking the engine. So I have a spark and fuel and the car still won’t run. Any ideas? may be time to get an auto electrician out! 
    • EFI Solutions aka Taarks have a great kit just for that. Better to have facts/data before making a decision. https://www.efisolutions.com.au/exhaust-pressure-sensor-pulse-damper-emap
    • I'm not sure why you removed the sound deadener???  Don't bother with DIY remedies... this is how you can do it properly. For the lightly stained areas, just stick to a fine grade wet sand paper....and then paint over once the stain is gone. For the worst areas...especially the pitted ones...you just need to sand the rust in the localised spot working down from a heavier grit to medium grit wet sandpaper, which will get most of the rust off. It's just localised rust from the spare wheel touching the boot. Don't go to town on sanding the whole boot...not needed! Try to avoid sanding the seam sealer etc (obviously) After the rust spots are down to bare metal - use a fine brush dipped in "RUST DEOXIDISER"...and carefully apply this to the little rust areas. It's important the chemical you use is DEOXIDISER. After applying that, let it sit for a while and obviously wipe off with prepsol before it dries, and repeat 3-4 times. If you go to a panel shop they will probably be able to sell you some - as the trade products are a shitload stronger than retail products. After deoxidising the rust, scuff the surrounding paint with red scotch brite....& then you are ready to apply etch primer and then paint the matte gray colour on. Mask up the surrounding area using tape & paper..... as you don't need to paint the whole boot, just blend it in and keep the repair as small as possible. Spray can paint or spray gun depending on your level of expertise will be fine. Probably will cost you about $100-$150 in materials.  
    • Interesting. The 30/900 looks right on paper but weather it gives me enough headroom is the question. I dont have a pressure sensor in the exhaust manifold so I won't know if I have a restriction unfortunately.
    • It depends if your current turbine is a restriction or not, if it is go up to the 35, it’s it’s not then stick the 30. Also the g30 turbine wheel will flow more then your gt30 one either way you go the compressor wheel is going walk away from your current turbo
