Default Installed Needs Wings Teflon Coated IC Hard pipe conversion

This is what you get from a far, well take better looks and comments on what think, thus far,thus far on lower set ,the smaller one, you cant see but there's a teflon pipE from glen to glen, that pipe is SOLID!!

The teflon coating is extremely smoooth, an pipes are LIGHT magnesium light? anyhow being this smooth and what else comes, his claims on better flow on the bench just might be so???

Inside and out pipe work, is beautiful, the bung perfectly welded, came with new rubber grommet for iat sensor and brass nipple for vacuum tapping

The set goes, right from top of each output of intercooler, the top, had pipes/better rubber till throttle body. NICE

The little bit of rubber, and when i say little, what you cant tell until installing, the teflon pieces, get pushed all the way into couplings so everywhere you squeeze its rock SOLID!

Obviously it can balloon anywhere, but under neath , it was ridiculous SOFT i mean i tore it in half taking off with one hand???the other side with hard plastic coupler had to be chiseled off??anyway next 2 pics are both sides of whats left when i remove factory rubber, so its almost pretty much HARD PIPED THE WHOLE RETURN, because this is where the pipe got pushed in farthest,hence strengthening entire assembly, its solid under there, doubt ill be getting any turbo lag from this little hop-up, also changed out my silicone lines with beefier, almost non crush-able lines, from boost the silicone is top Notch, after i did a decent series of mods, i had some crazy spiking going on when i hammered it, so i will report if any of what i did, indeed prevent "ballooning" anywhere removing any turbo lag, and spiking issues!

the other lower factory ic tube ready to be hooked up to..

a little pricey, but if it works with i bought them for its alot cheaper than a engine!!! and a nice lil upgrade as well

Semper Fidelis!!!

Are those the eBay ones?

Unless you are running extremely high boost, hard pipes are a waste of money.

Look nice, but ineffective
