    Cink in turbo boost hose

    Hey guys, as title states was doing some checks on the pipes and thought id check the turbo pipe as i've never done before. Just had a quick look and feel, and it seems it's gone in on itself and looks like it's twisted/cinked? not surew if it's ment to go in on itself in the middle.

    I've got a pic (bar not a good one):



    might be normal but thought id ask

    It does come off at a funny angle, it looks ok in the pic, there is a forge upgraded pipe that is a lot better than the origonal.

    I agree with Dave, that looks ok in the picture. You can always remove the hose for a better check and then put it back on again.
