Ok, I have 2 questions?

1. Is 15 PSI to high to be running with my mods?
2. If it is why did my "Y" pipe crack? Its cracked right in front where the 2 hoses come in from the IC's.
3. Any one have a aftermarker one for sale not too expensive?;)

15PSI *looks* fine. Mods mean nothing tho, it's how well you've tuned what you've got. I wouldn't go much farther without looking into fuel stuff tho.

Why did your Y-Pipe crack? stress from a bad bump and nothing else gave? I'm surprised it cracked since most of the piping in the VR-4's is rubber/plastic stuff right? It should give instead of crack.. typical Y-Pipe injuries we hear about are people blowing them off under high boost.

The stock y-pipe always blows off at 15psi (or cracked in your case). This is *VERY* common.

Here's the y-pipe suggested:

Don makes BEAUTIFUL stuff, and its < $200

.jon

[EDIT: DO NOT RUN MORE THAN 1.0bar (14.5psi) ON STOCK FUEL SYSTEM! ITS BEEN PROVEN TIME AND TIME AGAIN - YOU WILL DESTROY A PISTON! ITS NOT WORTH THE 1/2 LB OF BOOST!]
