    You do get a different sound...more of a sound of pressurised air rushing down a pipe, type noise.

    As for gains...it's highly unlikely you'll get any gains...maybe on a big turbo car, or on running a K04 flat out...but even then there are other restrictions in the inlet system that need to be removed before the turbo pipe becomes a restriction.

    I never saw a direct gain with my modified pipe.

    That picture doesn't look like a TIP, it looks like a charge-pipe.

    there was a thread on these about 2-3 months ago - and are only just out of the testing stages from what i remember? Someone on here has one fitted to their car though. They're also about 600 quid IIRC...

    It's a turbo outlet pipe, or charge pipe. It's me that has one fitted, and I paid no where near that much. £100 inc delivery. Second hand, but even new I wouldn't pay much more.

    umm, i think i must have got that wrong then by the looks of the original thread!! I'm sure though that it was something like that when people on seatcupra.net started posting about it. £100 aint bad really.

    Thats almost as cheap as some of the OEM plastic hoses that my corrado vr6 used to chew through.
