GQV Intercooler Pipe Restriction
While installing a K&N filter to my Giulietta 2010 QV, I have noticed that the pipe from the turbo to the intercooler has a restricted size when compared to the rest of the hoses, plus it looks like it has a restrictor of some sort - not sure what the segment marked as '1' contains, the ePER catalogue doesnt say much.... I am referring to the pipe highlighted on the attached image. Does someone know of a supplier who provides an aftermarket high flow replacement for that pipe as I am confident it would make quite a difference in airflow fed to the intercooler from the turbo if widened to the size of the rest of the hoses.
Thanks in advance
