Your've been robbed , I remember my grandads ute used to have one of those , it had something to do with the "oil mist" I think thats what he said , thought they had moved on from those early days. I'm sure the weight saving will be an advantage to you anyhow. :)

And do tell are these some of the mods you have in mind ?

Re: What is this??

greetings all
XLR8 from what i have seen it's only on the manual,s
the only cars i have seen it on is the manual pursuit's, check with the sedan drivers & see if it's part of the extra weight gain that the ute drivers were lucky enough to gain lol

regards
rod

I now stand corrected here >>>>>>> "phallic pipe?" its something like you see hanging under trucks on the road (usually has steam ,water, oil, piss and that sort of thing comming out of it ) lol and leaves a black line on the road so you can follow .

Anyone else with a bright idea ? feel free to post so by next week Rob will be at the bottom of all this.

Re: What is this??

Is the same function as the EB to EL intake silencer tubes also used for initial startup. Not to sure why they are not on the sedans but.
