That’s a bad idea right there!


It’s a vacuum hose for your bypass valve. I’d suggest replacing it all with one piece instead of 2.

Not sure why anyone would do it the way it is.

Thanks. Definitely getting it one piece.

It is likely not the same size so you need an adaptor of sorts but something better than that for sure.

Is the top of the bypass valve separated from the body? Looks like it came apart. Maybe that is the way it is supposed to look....

There are 4 plastic prongs that anchor to a metal body. Two of the prongs failed...

Are these bypass actuators specific to the supercharger kit? I reached out to monkey wrench and online they only offer for the mp62. I would need one for a tvs 1320 from vision function.

Not familiar with that kit, but it's possible the piece joining the tubing is a size-specific restrictor.
