    Anyone got this fitted? (JBI top hat and boost pipe kit)

    Does anyone have this fitted to their GSi/SRI-T/Coupe

    Are they any good, do you get any gains from it? are they easy to fit?

    Yep I have this fitted to myne along with there intercooler kit coulnt tell you the gains as i noticed a massive improvment as a hole,,

    but I used to have boosting issues with the standard hoses colasping, which caused limp home modes, after fitted hardpipe and tophat all problems are nomore

    local garage fitted myne they sayed they had problems with the nuts and or the bolts part from that all fitted ok.

    Hope that helps you, someone else will come up with some better advice soon no doubt

    for cosmetic reasons really, i have 51mm fmic pipework
    doesnt matter if u have 6ft pipework only X amount of air can get through, so whats point of bigger pipework,theres no gain to be had imo

    I have this fitted to mine, not really sure if it makes a difference or not as i only just got the car? But at least they wont expand and collapse like standard pipes.
