    It can vary depending, you really need to measure what you have to know excatly.

    haha, I was just about to say don't be a lazy ****** Liam!

    But just to confirm your measurements, it's 50mm for all the straight couplers, 52mm will be a loose fit, you'll need 3 of these. then onto the core, you need a 50-63 reducer for the hot side, and a 60-63 for the cold side.

    I got some really nice 5 ply stuff at very sensible prices from www.siliconhoses.com. Tehy also supplied me with some nice JCS HiTorque clamps, which are very nicer than the mikalor copies supplied with the turborevs kit

    cheer Nick!
    got a quote today from Roose motorsport which i thought was quite reasonable. gonna try the place you got yours from aswell though.
    Tell me about those clamps, their ****!!
    had a boost pipe blow off twice now, they dont seem to be able to tighten up enough.
