Hey guys just dropped a new 97 motor in my 96 TSI. on the driver side of my intake to the left of a ground wire their is this half inch long gold nipple? What's it for and what plugs onto it, where do i find what plugs into it: I'm stumped . I don't have pictures but I'm sure someone will know what I'm talking about.

Re: Intake Nipple? what for?

If it is a small one it is most likely for the FPR. Can you get a pic of it and its location?

Re: Intake Nipple? what for?

Im not a mind reader first of all, and second I haven't had a ground wire or even SEEN a stock engine bay in years. To the best of my knowledge the only nipple that should even been on the driverside is for the FPR. Which I said above.

Re: Intake Nipple? what for?

Yes sorry, I shouldn't assume things. I believe your correct. But I think the line goes from the intake nipple to the Fuel Pressure Solenoid which then goes from the Solenoid to the Regulator. I checked the pictures on my phone and looks like the line for the intake was tucked down by my firewall and the regulator was already on. Also, my fuel return line isn't hooked up. I've searched the forums but their has not been any discussion on where the fuel return line comes from? Is it a line coming out of my firewall or somewhere else like under the car? Sorry for all the questions guys but I am just finishing the job my brother actually pulled it out and dropped it in. I'm doing the rest. Also, SHOTT17 you have been a good help thus far. thank you.

Re: Intake Nipple? what for?

Here is a vac hose routing diagram for a 97.
. That should help to answer your question about the vacuum port on your manifold.

Your fuel line feeds in from the passenger side of the fuel rail, and exits after the FPR on the drivers side portion of the fuel rail.

Re: Intake Nipple? what for?

I forgot some people still have a FPRS. I always ditched them in favor of direct route from intake to FPR.

The fuel return line will run up the firewall from behind the subframe. It ultimately ends up at the fuel tank routed under the car.

Re: Intake Nipple? what for?

So is my fuel return line coming off the fuel rail or is it coming from firewall? Sorry got confused there :S. So I bought some 17's for my car so I'm going to shop to install them tomorrow. I'll let you guys now if I figure everything out ok. Thanks!
