    I would say that any of the Fleabay TIP's would be an upgrade from OEM, no?

    I used normal jubilee clips available from any motor factor etc but would advise using stainless ones if you can. I took the TIP in with me and just got the ones I needed so can't tell you what sizes you need off hand.

    They don't need to be the hi-torque ones that Forge supply as its not under pressure on the inlet but I would use those if I were doing it again as you are less likely to get the 'click of death' when you tighten them.

    Go for an Autobahn 88 one. They are very good quality and they are 4 ply thickness, same as a Forge or Samco hose. The fitment was really easy except for the DV hole, being very tight.

    I had a slight gain when I installed mine. The turbo would die off about 500 rpm highier in the range and pull slightly smoother at the top of the range.

    Dont be fooled by buying a Forge or Samc as your just paying for the name, this one if HALF the price (paid £51 I think).

    You will need 6 jubilee clips. 50, 20, 20, 5, 30, 80mm roughly
