    CDTi Airbox pipework

    Where do most people get the pipe that goes from the AFM to the turbo? Noticed most are fabricated from alloy or some other shiny metal, but are these available to buy somewhere?

    So that would leave me needing the VXR AFM and a remap!

    Any other options?

    I have used a 70mm 45 degree elbow and then a 70mm to 60mm reducing 90 degree elbow on to the turbo.

    I got a 45 degree elbow from ebay that was incredibly short! I know the samco's are a bit longer - are those angles a good match or a perfect match> Have you any pictures?

    Glen why did you use a 70mm one or do you have a standard AFM?
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    The samco hoses are quite long and had to be trimmed to fit at the AFM end


    yes Lee still running standard 70mm AFM.
