Change as much as you can on the boost circuit mate. I've done upper intercooler hoses, the red hose from turbo to charge pipe, charge pipe to N75, charge pipe to DV, turbo intake pipe, DV to manifold, brake servo, and ripped out the N249 hoses and PCV hoses......... and breathe. Car is sweet now ;)

Pretty much the same ^^^^ costs a few quid but after initial blow offs to judge the new T clamps, everything is sweet....
