i am haveing a hard time hooking up the mbc on my ae. very hard to get tools/hands to disconnect the hose shown in the pic. tryed cutting, pulling, twisting, it wont move! anyone have any ideas of how to get this hose off?
Do it is Idryfly5 says... Put the car on ramps, Place a Jack under Oil Pan, using a block of wood, or something eles to help cushion between pan, and the Jack. Remove the Splash Gaurd (6 screws). Locate the bolts to the motor mount, one on top, one on bottom. Remove them. Jack the engine up about two inches. The mount will now pull out. The wastgate hose will clearly be visable. This is ALOT eaiser from pulling all the intake, and doing it on top. Trust me. Done it MANY times.
ok got it hookd up today, went from the bottom. took off the motor mount very easy to get to with that off. i went for a test drive, with the adjuster on the mbc all the way down (hand tight) i could only boost 6-7 and would spike to 10 but now stay. this is how i have it hookd up, is it right?
