Hi just fitted some au intake piping in to my eb all is good except just before the intake meets the manifold there is a spot for a hose to go on and I dont know where it is supposed to go. Just wondering if someone could give me an idea.

Thanks

when you say eb and your fitting an au intake i assume you have a broadband manifold??
is it a small 3/4 hose?? if so its for the rear rocker cover breather.. au have the breather on the intake pipe instead of the bottom of the throttle body...

Yep. I used a bolt with some silicon on the thread.

I have a AU intake on my EF.
Being dual fuel, the breather is connected there and plugged at the throttle body.

That's how I set mine up for LPG injection - BUT, If there's a mixer in the line, make sure the join is on the aircleaner side of the mixer.
