    that pipe kit would work but you would have to flange the ends of the pipe to stop the hoses blowing off i am also considering going down this route.
    how much did the cooler cost just out of interest??

    you would have to get 2 pairs of mole grips and spread the end of the pipes out so it gives the jubilee clips something to bite onto!
    i think the 3'' inlet might be a bit big and the intercooler might be too big and create alot more lag! let us know how it goes though!

    I have a couple pipes I shortened and thus lost the flange. Using Mikalor clamps instead of jubilee and there are no leaks whatsoever. I have been pushing 20+ psi through them too so i doubt a K04 would get near that kind of pressure.

    Dont worry about the lack of flanges.
