    i bought 3.

    inlet, and the two upper intake hoses.

    with stainless jubilees your looking at £270+ ish inc vat.

    there are a couple of very short hoses also on the lower ic pipes but they are a. very short, b. pig to get to and c. another £70+vat to purchase so nobody ever bothers.

    My hose fitting pictorial here.

    I've had the turbo and the two intake hoses done. Not really sure if it improved the power at all, but I know that the turbo pipe was collapsing following the rechip so that needed to be done anyway. Plus the blue hoses on a Nogaro car look good /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    nope, didnt effect torque either, (i had a RR soon after they were fitted)

    But you could tell it did help top end breathing. Just like when its a cold and frosty day, the engine tone changes and really roars.

    Now the intake is silky smooth you also hear the rushing of air into the turbo much much more, now its unrestricted..

    I also had the sleeve as the OEM hose would start to collapse in hot summer.
