Intercooler pipes

Post by Ant318 »

I would like to replace the hot side pipe. I would of liked the forefront industry kit, he only has the polished alloy pipe in stock and I would has preferred the black pipe.
Has any one used any of the kits from ebay and were they any good or are they rubbish ?
I have read some of the posts regarding the silicone verses alloy pipe debate and not sure if the extra weight of the silicone pipe is a real issue or not.

Cheers, Tony.

The Silicon pipe weighs close to 1kg where the Alloy pipe is under 600gms
I fitted a Silicon pipe but changed to Alloy, didn't like so much un-supported weight bouncing on a flimsy plastic Intercooler neck.

Just buy the polished alloy kit and hit it with some black spray paint.
