Stock plastic or rubber intercooler pipes can be expanded or cracked at high boost levels. In addition to this, the stock pipes have many bends, which are very tight in some places, causing a lot of resistance and a pressure drop. Vivid Racing Piping kits are made of aluminum for enhanced durability and safety. The pipes have been redesigned to reduce the number of bends and increase the bend radius to minimize pressure loss and flow resistance.
The piping kit replaces the turbocharger with the intercooler and the intercooler with the inlet manifold. A convenient kit that allows the replacement of boost pipes that can often pop off in higher boost use and is recommended for tuning where the stock intercooler is still used.
