WorldClassAccident is on a distinguished road

Screwdriver is there to show the split.

Standard BMW parts do not fit because it is a 2.5 intake manifold on a 2.8 head and the hoses are different. Hence the gaffer taped version that has died.
The 2 pipes not impaled by a screwdriver are the nearest I can get. A silicon alternative would be preferable but there is a slight bend and that little pipe coming out the side which means I can't get one.

Managed to bodge one together with one of the two good pipes and some bicycle innertube glued over. This got the engine running but I will not remove and improve at the weekend.
