Regardless, that hot side intercooler pipe touches like 3 different locations, and I think over time it will tear just like your previous one, it needs to be shielded sooner rather than later.

Yup, somehow the slammed dopplemobile's upper control arm has enough pivoting movement to rub through the last hot side pipe. It also rubs on the lower radiator line and AC line as pictured.

A scrap of the old hose wrapped around the new hose would probably buy you some time, but it may just wear through faster, as it would be thicker.

Cars truly are never ending projects.

So if anyone is curious- I pulled the rest of the filter in the filter mount on the firewall. Inspection reveals NOTHING. All ports/passage ways and everything on the sandwich plate are perfectly clean. I'll grab a can of brake cleaner and spray out the lines to see if anything is in there. The mystery deepens...

yeah, the filter sandwich plate is exactly for fucked Shiuend's motor. Somehow it cut all oil pressure, I dont think he bothered to figure out why, just removed it.
