Very long boost circuit, no real gain, prob won't be able to fit it where you want to.

the long route was what i was thinking

im not after any gain

i want the charged air to be cooler to make the engine run cooler, as i read the key to hgf is to keep the engine cool, just a idea

yes so you paid 200 quid for it all

so i need just piping,,,, even if i pay 140, but then i suppose a double capacity oem look i/c would be cheaper??

any way
i can get the alloy pipes made bent for preety much nothing, mate works at a metal fab/engernerring company already spoke to him and asked if i could get this done

yeh i thought bout that as u can see the rads sittin a bit wonky lol but rather than start extending pipes an stuff i figure its gona be far easier to just cut out a notch, line it with something then the pipe shud sit in it nicely
