    TXAutosport Top Hat and Power Pipe

    Just seen this on ebay and wondered if anyone has come across this or actually got it fitted to their car? Or has it just come on the market over here - It seems a recent addition as hasn't been on the bay in the past 2 months.

    Looks like a decent bit of kit.

    Although that would mean going from 76mm from tophat to 63mm in the middle to 51mm (or whatever it is) at the intercooler. Thought the whole idea of better flow was that it should all be the same..

    But it is certainly interesting as it was only the other day that I was thinking about getting Powerflow to make me up a custom 63mm (2.5") pipe from top hat to intercooler..

    Wouldn't touch it with a barge pole. Unless you cut it on the top left hand run and put a small silicon/rubber joined in

    Why's that then mate?

    How do you mean cut it?

    Just make a replica of the original you mean so you can fit a standard power pipe on there?

    Looks good to me.

    I asked this seller about these a while ago as he was selling C20LET tophats. He replied saying these would be out and mailed me to say they are now on ebay.

    Says he can do a group buy if people are interested and offer free postage as a result. If there is some interest i can respond to his offer.
