    are you getting a strange noise on gear change, like a chatter? could be the pipe which goes onto the vacume box, you will need to jack the car up to refit it, worth gluing it too. You will be down on power too if its that pipe

      It's meant to go onto the vacuum box, yours must of blown off, common issue, and causes the "turkey noise" Just connect it back up and maybe rap a tie wrap around it, or a dab of glue.

          you can refit from above the engine, although its a pain to find the nipple it fits on to just by feeling, ive done it this way tho, twice (it WILL come off again eventually if you dont secure it)

                You sure it ain't coming from the fuel rail area, near the fuel lines? If so it's normal, as long as it isn't really loud like...
