Afternoon chaps,

Random question, does anyone local have any spare intercooler pipes I could borrow for a while, I dont mind a bit of a drive to borrow them . Im hoping to have someone fabricate or at least get me some solid pipe to replace the standard rubber hoses. Im sure I read somewhere on here that the ID is 2". Trying to source pipework hasnt been to easy (or cheap - reckon I could get a universal FMIC for some of the prices I've seen).

Cheers in advance :)

I've got a set of the original rubber pipes on my garage shelf if you're interested?

Got some Autolusso silicone jobbies fitted, and for some reason decided to keep the old bits!

Haha. Lucky guess ;)
Looks good though. I take it those t bar clamps (hope I got that right) are the best clamps to use for the connections? I plan to follow another members write up and use the rubber for the connections. They reckoned theirs was holding fine under boost.
I just need to get my mate to pull his finger out and sort some pipe out....... he's a master of procrastination lol

I had used the original jubilee clamps at first but the local Cromwell Tools shop had the T Bat Clamps in stock and they worked out cheaper than heavy duty jubilee clips. They clamp up really firm and i think they look a lot better too, plus they are stainless so hopefully wont rust too much lol

I made the pipe with as little gap between the turbo and intercooler as possible so there is hopefully less chance of it being blown off at boost, its a bit of a squeeze getting it on but is holding up even after some spirited driving :)

Thanks again to Ed for the pipes that was most appreciated fella, and to samsdad for the heads up on the sizes. Hopefully soon I should have some nice shiny new hard pipes :)
My try and push my luck and see if I can get two sets knocked up! ;)

No worries Bud :thumbup:

They were taking up space on my spares shelf, so happy I could get rid of them and help you out at the same time!
