Where do you get this? I want to do this as well. Or pay a man to do it for me in case I break a nail

All the hoses are online from Forge & Mtec + ebay if your handy with tools its a no brainer you will have to remove the sump cover under the engine to access the intercooler hoses but its not rocket science I would suggest buying the bigger jubilee clips I reused the old ones but they were a tight fit

I found the forge ones. I’ve ordered the lot. It makes sense to just kill the prospect of problems from cracked pipes etc. 👌🏼

I need these too, they look good only I want the red. I’ll have to pay someone to fit as I’m absolutely hopeless.

Mines that dark grey. I haven’t stuck them in yet. I’m waiting on an oil feed pipe and will get it all done then. I’ve had them in every other car I’ve stuck stuff like this on so it’s a change. I think they had black. Fit and forget anyway. Nobody will see them apart from me and the mechanic anyway

And he’s going to clean out that little filter when he’s in there. He showed me where it was but he can do it 😜

Grey and blue is good. You’re right nobody will see it but my OCD will know 😂. I’ll get around too it eventually I’ve just ordered some coils and plugs.
what happens with the resonator delete? More noise etc?

Less noise into the cabin probably. That doesn’t bother me TBH. If I wanted a symphony I’d have stuck with an Alfa Busso. I’ve normally got music on anyway so if the engine is louder it’s because the pistons are going through the bonnet 😁
