    just a little help...

    hey guys, so i was taking out my radiator and noticed a few things that were unplugged. now these 2 things were already unplugged before i took other things out.

    it mite seem silly but im just not sure wat they r or where they connect to as i never noticed them before...

    the hose is next to the water housing and the plug is located near the driver side fog light

    That pipe goes into the intake section of the pipes that run into the INTAKE side of your turbo's...the wire looks like it might go into a radiator temp sensor or one of your fans? can you take a pic further back?

    If the fans both work then it's not for the radiator fans or temp sensor as the fan won't run unless it's plugged in. The hose goes in the intake bubble as stated above.

    ahh thanks guys. i was checking Zigens car and Jays car and found where it connected to. it was just weird coz that plug has never been plugged into the intake pipe because the pipe was blocked off with a screw...is this going to cause problems for my car?

    the wire doesnt go into the radiator temp sensors or the fan wen i unplugged it. it seems like an extra plug for some reason, lol

    what it does is suck out the fumes from the heads...and sucks it into the turbo's. I've always left it connected

    Hey Tony, that plug could be for the front active aero motor.

    That plug could just be a remainder if the previous owner went from a 1g radiator to a 2g radiator. I know cos it happened to me, I put a 2g radiator in which actually has no bungs for the temp sensors for the radiator fans thus no sensors. If it was done a while ago the previous owner would've found a work around to get the fans to work so if this is the case dont think you have too much to worry about.

    I'm pretty sure that's an extra plug. I can't remember why it's there but there is also another one by the passenger side firewall.

    The hose is part of the PCV system. It pulls/vents air out of the crankcase. As long as the place in the intake was plugged up and the hose was NOT plugged up it doesn't cause any issues.
