On the B202 throttle body (or something nearby in the inlet tract) the coolant runs through this, I imagine to help with emissions from cold or running while warming up. The inlet pipe on mine in leaking slightly, would it be worth bypassing it - I can't see the logic of cooling the inlet air in the intercooler, then warming it up again.

Thoughts?

Think it mainly prevents throttle plate icing up. I had this happen once while driving a snowmobile, got help from a tree to stop it!

If never significantly below freezing on Island of Sodor winters bypass, plug, connect the two ends should be fine. Otherwise I would replace the leaking parts.

I have bypassed this on my B234 and on my sons B202.
Just need a 12mm U bend copper pipe.

I only occasionally need the assistance of Terence to tow me out of the snow, and haven't needed my snow plow for a while!

Bypass it is! Have you got any pictures of yours Paul?

I've bypassed on every B204 I've ever had (alterately using some copper pipe or a longer full replacement of the whole of the two hoses). Never caused problems even in the deepest British winter, which let's face it is not very deep.
