Default Help me ID this BEGI pipe.

Hey everyone, I need some help ID'ing this component. I have looked at various pictures I can find on here/the internet and the BEGI installation manuals for the various generation of kits.

I realize this is not the best picture, but is this pipe the throttle body -> IC pipe (the upper half)? It also kinda looks like the turbo inlet from the installation manual. I appreciate any help

The smaller hose is either a 94-97 style idle valve return (which is good for me!), or breather hose in the turbo inlet. That's what is throwing me for the loop here... it seems too small for the IACV return, so thats why I tend to lean towards 18psi's turbo inlet opinion. It's tough to say. The bend in the pipe seems incorrect for the TB pipe as well, should arch the other way?

Long story short: I'm trying to make sure I'm not getting screwed by someone.

Edit: It also looks too short to be the TB pipe as well from the pictures I can find *shrug*

turbo inlet. i.e., intake pipe.

small port is for the crank case breather, large port is for the BOV recirculation.

This, there is no way in hades that would go to the TB, it looks like it would dump out right into the radiator inlet, or at least go where the cooling hose would go.

Not that it matters, but BEGI eventually emailed me back and indicated the same as all the experts here already know. Appears to be from an externally gated NB S5 kit they said as well.

I can tell you, you don't need that piece for the MKTurbo setup.
