Right, someone please put me out of my misery.
What is the blanch tube, what does it do, does itís size matter?
(Itís the tube in front of the inter cooler as you look in the engine bay.)
Mine is accident related squashed and I canít find one so was going try and make something.
I know itís something to do with air intake, but no idea how it affects it??
Any help would be great.

Had no idea what it was called, found it called that in a Mitsubishi service pdf.
Getting rid of it works with me, easier than making a new one 👍🏻
Cheers!

It's usually called a resonator tube, to dampen out pulses in the inlet system of an engine.

Had a feeling it might be that. But to be honest until this thread started i'd never really looked at it thought it was part of the intercooler mount. Live and learn every day.

It could be there to reduce intake noise, or dampen out an air pulse that were found to damage certain components, intercooler, turbo compressor wheel, perhaps - don't know.
