I installed a Samco turbo inlet pipe today along with the Process West TMIC and splitter. It seems I damaged a fuel line during the removal of the OEM and / or the install of the Samco. As soon as I started the WRX the unwelcome surprise aroma of gasoline filled the air. Sure enough there was a puddle of gas below the inlet pipe.
I noticed nothing during the process indicating a problem with the fuel line(s). I'm assuming I damaged a section of the rubber lines as shown in this image from Scoobymods.
I'll have a look tomorrow as I am totally spent physically (and mentally). At least I will be familiar with the removal process. I sincerely hope the intake manifold does not need to come off.
Anyone have any insight / experience with a similar fuel line issue?
Oh, don't miss the prequel: "I suck at turbo swaps".
