Flexible or rubber intercooler hoses tend to suffer with age and increases in boost pressure. It’s a safe bet that if it can expand then it will, especially when you’re running more boost than standard, and this can affect the driveability and response of the engine.

Type1 Racing are developing a neat polished aluminium hard-pipe kit to do away with these problems. This fully mandrel bent system also has an increased pipe diameter of between 63 and 70mm and comes complete with 4 layer silicon hose joiners and hardware.

All up the T1R hardpipe system beats the stock system in terms of weight also. It’s just 3.98kg total, about 2.5kg lighter than standard.

It’s due to be released in early 2010 so we’ll post back with pricing when it is.
