just came across this thread again, no probs guys! I ended up changing the 90 degree bends off the cooler to metal pipework - this way its thinner and fogs can be put in. Heres how mine now looks

Iv got 2 here, a spare with a big exit about 4inch, and 1 on my motor with a 3inchish exit.

how do you tell the old 1's?

These are only 2inch pipe though so really looking for a 2.5


which of them are rolled out and which of them are rolled in meaning look at the exit point
is there a lip or none???????????????????

The one on my car is around 3inch exit, outwardly rolled lip

the spare, around 4inch exit, also outwardly rolled lip

I fitted some to a clio 172 and they where fine when front and rear pads where well down, then put new pads on and wheels wouldnt go on, lol. The guy had to buy some spacers, 10mm, and slightly longer bolts, think they cost him 20 in all

Yer a standard airbox would be better, or get the filter to the front so it gets cool air.

Regards to exhaust, you wont need anything big for a bar of boost, a scorpion system will do you fine, and any enlarged downpipe, get a dremmel and work the inside of the standard turbo elbow to bore it out as much as you can, but not alot to be had there.

With the filter to the front
free flowing exhaust
carb jetted to suit
yourl be pretty impressed with how well it goes
