Basically I have a K&N filter fitted onto the original inlet pipe, I want to change the hose for a silicone one like the one you get with the forge induction... I just don't fancy forking out £200 for the forge one.

I am currently speaking with someone who specialises in silicone hoses and induction kits and he said with the measurements he can make me a hose for a quarter of what forge charge!

Does anybody know what size the bit of the pipe that goes into the turbo needs to be??

Pipe im on about is highlighted in the photo below, thanks!

Team Boc is great ;)

also, why not move the battery, and make a straight reducer from turbo, and stick the filter at the end, the intake for the stock system is pure **** so just take it off, and voila straight cold air into filter.

Inlet size is 37mm if anyone else ever needs to know, that was the finished product, not bad for £55.00

What diameter is the inlet of the aftermarket filter that you put on or the diameter of the part of the hose that the filter goes on?
