I converted my 86 Daytona to T2 specs. I had the car running and noticed my lower intercooler hose was collapsed. I was thinking of getting another used one but would it do the same thing? Can I put a spring from a radiator hose in the IC hose? The hose is kind of worn and soft. I dont want to buy an ebay kit. Has this ever happened to anyone else? I have searched on here but nothing promising.

Sure, a spring from a radiator hose would solve the problem.

No hoses should be collapsed on a T2 setup since no hoses would be under vacuum.

would be under pressure and if it collapsed then something is def not right, either its just that weak or its the incorrect hose

but your best bet would be to see if a muffler shop can mandrel bend you a small section for replacement

I was going to say the same thing as goes like hell and stops like hell. You shouldn't be seeing a lower intercooler hose on a TII car collapse. Definitely strange. I have seen the blow-through T1 charge hoses collapse momentarily when snapping the throttle open quickly. But never under any circumstance on a blow-through intercooled engine seen a hose collapse. And I am unfortunately unable to come up with a reason why this would be happening on your car. Though it is in fact possible as you say it is happening. Maybe someone can chime in and come up with a scenario that would cause it.

Only way that it would collapse is if you had a significant restriction in the air box.

What about too much air? I have a free flowing K&N filter hooked up.

Is it just collapsing for an instant right as you open the throttle? There's absolutely 0 reason it should be collapsed once the turbo spools, but in the lag moment from open throttle to spooling it could collapse for a very quick instant.

The problem is that with years and miles the heat cycles weaken the rubber. Then you get oil leaks which eat into it and you end up with a soft rubbery mess. Honestly, it's not so common as to be something to worry about. Just find another one from someone on here or make your own with some rubber couplers and a metal tube. There's nothing magical about the stock hose other than it's molded to fit the space easily.
