    mines an amk with esp as well,it wasnt bad to fit it took about 45mins to fit as you have to remove the air filter box and dump valve etc,performes well and i think is well worth the £60 i paid rather than £120 for a samco,

    Are there any pipes that I would benefit from changing? I already have a TIP but will I get any better flow where OEM pipes are restrictive?

    You'll get less movement and flexing under boost on the other hoses

    I would swear the upper intercooler hoses improved air flow, but not conclusive. The original intake manifold to intercooler one (on the right) is quite restrictive.

    They do smarten the engine bay up though even if they don't increase performance
