    Its done! I've been folowing this with interest.
    If i'm honest i don't think it looks too bad, it certainly looks like it means business.
    Powdercoating the pipes would help with the stealth look but wouldn't it be possible to have a new cold side pipe made up with a sharper bend backwards to clear the bumper?
    obviously it would effect flow slightly but would it be that much of a difference?

    I've been thinking about a new cold side pipe this morning.

    Yeah, if the pipe had a bend only 3mm sharper it would miss the bumper altogether, so I reckon I'll end up doing that, and get it anodised black.

    At which point I'll just buy a new lower bumper from GSF and it'll be completely hidden...

    Well done Dave,

    although where's the lengthy and detailed write-up?!!

    I wouldn't say that it looks ugly but then I also wouldn't say that it looks 'stealthy' - if that was the look you were hoping for....... you can SEE it and it looks meeeeean!

    Personally, as you don't "seem" to be 100% happy with the look, I would lean more to the RichA3Turbo method (new bumper with more space - keep the core and piping nice'n'shiney).

    Let us know what its like after the remap.

    Bloody typical, you get a lovely new IC and the British summer turns S.H.1.T!!

    Don't bother with the ATP quick tap.

    Far better off making a proper screw in N75 take off using a brass hose tail.

    Drill and screw it into into the pipework, and seal it up with chemical metal.
