cross flow and lost power

So I put a cross flow IC the saab one , and I have a T25 and I used Platanoff DIY but he has it going to a tdo4 and so the hose is a bit different and I feel like I have 3 turns on the hose that goes to turbo which is one more turn than I had with the old Intercooler , and It feels like sluggish , does anybody know what the hose should look like, I could not get saab hose to fit (Tdo4) to the t25 Id say its about an inch to short and a weird angle, so i cut and made it work but not impressed

The hose isn't from a Viggen, it is from a 99 9-3 HOT. It was a Trionic 5 engine management car with a T25 turbo, combined with a viggen IC.

I sold the only one I had a few months back.

OOPS! Yea, I forgot the Viggen used the Misu TD04 not the Garret T25. Still, it's the right part number for the 99 HOT install.

True, those hoses are not cheap, I've had to buy a couple of them. Have seen a couple bodge jobs of trying to make something else work and rather than follow suit, I opted for the "right" hose on both my '99's when I installed the cross flow IC's on them.

The hose has a real funny pair of bends in it, one near u-turn to bring the turbo output up higher than the outlet of the compressor the other has a pair of kinks in to to get from in front of the a/c compressor, make room for the water pump inlet hose and then into the IC itself.
