Might be a good opportunity to consider solid hoses as opposed to rubber.
Do a junk yard run....for a couple bucks, then use those hoses to have some custom solid tubes fab'd up... use silicon hoses to the turbo, and delivery pipe.
The question is whether to use stainless, or aluminum. You generally want that charge from the turbo to be as consistent and as cool as possible. Using heat shield turbo, and or exhaust wrap

|MatthewB||Some guys have cut up their original hoses to fit the new lay out (i.e. inlet and outlet on either end). There should be enough hose to do this, but personaly I think it is better to buy the hoses and do the installation properly. If you are looking for a better price I believe the hoses are cheaper here in Canada. When I was shooping for the hoses for the Viggen intercooler I found that my local Canadian Dealer had them for $100 CDN ea as opposed to $100 USD ea in the States. Not sure if this is still the case.|

Hey guys I just got my MP IC today, only took 4 days very nice work guys.
Anyway I plan on putting it on my 95ng but i didnt get the additional hoses for it just the unit, does anyone have suggestions that did this before of what hoses i can use? I know that ill be short on hose length because of the stock ic set up. I havent ripped off the bumper yet to install it waiting for other things, but i was wondering what problems are ahead?
