bov install gone wrong!!

so i was installing my bov and was removing the vacuum line on the side of the throttle body.... damn vacuum lines are hard to remove... well anyway... i broke the nipple off on the side of the throttle body.. anyone know how much it would be to get this fixed.. i have a temporary fix.. was able to plastic weld it on.. but knowing that its broken still sucks... for a picture i believe its connected to the whole piece that is being pointed out with the red arrow... dont mind the yellow arrows... i borrowed this pic off another bov install

Obviously you were looking at my DIY for this. How did you manage to break the nipple off? I played with those things all day (putting on, taking off etc) and I found it hard to break them. I ended up breaking the nippled off the stock BOV but thats about it.

Regardless, your arrow is pointing to the intake plenum. The throttle body is attached to it, but not a part of it. If you can take off the throttle body(which being on the other side seems like a bitch) then youll have a better idea as to what youre dealing with. Worst case scenario youll have to replace the throttle body.

ya dont really wanna mess with the throttle body since it looks way too complicated to take out... any idea how much this replacement will cost?.. i guess i was just one of those unlucky people that had that vacuum line really "hooked" on.

I couldnt even fathom a guess. Its one of those things that the car is so new, nobody has priced out replacements yet. However, my best suggestion is to find a salvaged/junked 335 and try to get parts off it(inc. the throttle body). With the amount of "oh noes I turnded my DSC cOmpletely offz" threads, theres bound to be enough for you to choose from. Then just get a quote from the dealer for labor.

Try some JB Weld, use lightly. Trying for a cheap fix.
