New Intake Piping Complete

Just wanted to show you guys my new inlet piping. I've had the cone filter for a while but was using the stock black rubber to attach it to the turbo. Now I am using a 2.5” mandrel bent pipe with silicone connectors. It really improves the turbo whine and looks great. More info on my site.

Looks very sharp, something I'd be interested in doing actually. Where did you get the silicone and also whats the measure of the silicone that actually connects to the turbo?

Thats pretty much what I did, except mine is one peice 2.5" for the T25 setup. This is an excellent design for NG900s with a TD04, or other aftermarket turbo, and Im sure can be adapted to make use of the MAF sensor on the 9-3s.

Where does the MAF usually sit on a T7 car? Right around where the upper blue silicone hose is in that pic?

I'm sure there will be slight changes, like how it attaches to the T25 turbo.

I've updated my site to answer the questions. Got the silicone from ebay and the pipe from the local speed shop. I tried Home Depot, the local auto part store and a muffler shop and none had a metal mandrel bent pipe. For a T25 turbo it would be a bit different. Here is a pic of my ported out TD04.

And the here’s the T25 with stock inlet pipe. The lip on the T25 is less than a 1/2 inch high.

so if you are cutting the pipe above the 90 angle then you wouldn't need a silcone elbow you would just need a straight silcone connector. correct?
