Compression Fitting For Est Downpipe And Sas Check Valve

Recommended Posts

I'm getting ready to crank up the V70 tomorrow for the first time in six months since the accident. I have an EST downpipe and catback installed. Frank sent me what I thought would be a 90 degree fitting for the SAS check valve, but it's just a straight adapter. I read about a fitting in this thread , but I'm not sure if it's just a regular plumbing fitting or what.

For those that have done this, where can I get a fitting like this? Were you able to install the turbo heatshield with a fitting like this?

I think I'm gonna at least crank the car over anyway without the check valve installed and if I get a cel then oh well, I have a reader to reset it. I just gotta hear my baby run! :)

Is it really that much air or are you being sarcastic? :lol:

Should I go ahead and just hook up the air pump hose and vac line to the check valve? I have the valve seperated from the pipe ... I could just wire tie it to something in the engine bay for now until I get a fitting.

So, heatshield? Anyone getting it to fit right after plumbing the valve back in correctly and using one of these fittings? It looks to me like it won't.
