    Which pipework is better?

    the turbo to intcooler outlet is 50mm i think, my intercooler is 63mm inlet.

    which is better, 63mm pipework and reducer up the the turbo or 50mm pipework and 63-50mm reducer onto the intercooler?

    your thoughts etc please

    You want as wide a diameter all the way round so as soon as the air leaves the 500mm turbo outlet it goes into the 63mm piping. Then out the 63mm intercooler outlet up to the throttle body, which im not sure about the diameter of that.
