    Silicon Piping

    Is silicon piping worth the cost for the sri turbo? I know they look great but is there any performance gain?

    Is there anywhere besides regal/courteney to get these from??

    Cheers

    Don't waste your money. The only hose worth changing is the intercooler to intake.

    Those pipes are too short to cause any dramas.

    Yeah , just been out to GCG turbochargers in sydney and spoke to them , they priced the 3 pipes up at AU$160 but he told me its not a real big performance thing .

    i got a stainless steel pipe from intercooler to intake made up with a pipe for the bov all in one piece for AU$200 , so im happy
