Ok, here is the short description of this product:
The A'PEX Auto Timer allows a vehicle to idle for a preset amount of time after the ignition key has been removed. This prevents hot oil in the engine from solidifying (called "coking") in the oil lines or the bearings of a turbo charger. Proper cool down is essential for a healthy engine, especially if that engine is subjected to the rigors of racing.

In ECS website, it says: "This hose replaces the existing hose and metal turbo intake combination and has a reinforced wall and super smooth internal design to ensure that laminar flow rates are maximised. With the original restrictions removed better flow characteristics are achieved which give noticeable gains in power and torque. You will need to plug the extra port if not needed."

Would like to install this by yourself??? Check this excellent DIY instruction made by Lam in

Now, there are more and more Samco silicone hoses in the engine room. :)

PS. AWP one fits on my AWU engine without any problem. It just works fine as the stock one. :)


Keep going..... :)
