    You can get them from a place called ESP, providing you are in the UK, excellent service from them .

    Might be worth dropping them an email though to make sure they are for the 8L

    the silicon pipes in general are longer lasting. The turbo pipes are stiffer than standard pipes and as result produce better air flow as they maintain their shape better.....

    If you read Ess Threes Sticky on these he says that they gained him a small amount of torque, i think about 10 lb-ft due to the fact that they are stronger thus not expanding under pressure so the air is more compressed.
