    What do you guys think?????
    This is how it looks with no meshing.........

    Here have a look at mine, I did mine just over a week ago.

    Put the black mesh back in it will still shine through and give you that finished look and it would look better with some RS4 black mesh.

    Ive been driving around today and it does seem to pull a bit better and it pulls right to the red line,with the old intercooler it would run out of steam alot earlier in the rev band.It feels alot better to drive now i have the power for longer.

    I got the silicone pipe from this guy on ebay..
    http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Performance-Silicone-Hoses
    and got my local exhaust centre to bend some stainless steel for me then i painted them black.All you need is 4 90% bends with about 6 inch either side,all you do is cut them to the length you need,its very easy to do.Oh you also need a exhaust joint for a corsa,about 3 from a motor factors so you can cut the lower pipe from the turbo and turn the bottom of the hose round.

    The joint for the corsa joins the centre section to the cat pipe.

    was hoping to do something similar to mine but dread the thought of taking the bumper off, anyone done a job like this without dismantling the front end?

    Not sure how you would do it without taking the bumper off,its very easy to remove.
