    pipework for 1.9 air box

    afternoon all,

    just got 1.9 air box to stick on my coupe, just wandering what set up regarding pipes we are all using??

    i have seen few that have metal pipe in between two smaller hoses and a very very few that have two pipes with a join in between but no pipe showing which i prefer.

    i kno the pipe has to reduce from 70 to 60 for top of turbo??

    anyone got any suggestions??

    2 x 90 degree silicone hoses one of the hoses needs to be a reducer elbow
    1 x joiner or T piece, depending on what your doing with the breather hose from rocker cover.

    I have vented mine to atmosphere, without any problems.

    Sorry to bump up an old thread -

    Can i get anywhere one of the above alloy pipes?

    Can i use it with a 2.2 air box?

    Does it matter if it goes before or after the AFM?

    Sorry if these are newbie q's.

    EDIT: Found the pipe work but not sure if it can be done before the AFM or even with the 2.2 airbox

    all alloy pipes can be found on ebay mate, well done for using the search function, ideally you want the afm close as possible to the airbox, im not sure if you can use that pipe with the 2.2 box
