Well, it's coming to the point where I'm looking for the next leg of fun.

Does anyone know if there is a producer/seller out there that has a hardpipe kit to replace the stock rubber intercooler hoses?

Or if there is a full front mount intercooler and pipe kit for the mk2 setup that can be bought off the shelf?

Would buy one used if one could be found :/

Thanks in advance :)

i used aluminum tubing and silicone connector hoses to build charge air pipes once upon a time.

it's funny that you would bring it up right now. when i was out in my garage picking though parts i found the charge air piping i built for a mk2 turbo3 7 years ago. :-P

That's awesome timing. Can you send some photos of how it all rigs up? Dying for ideas. Ah, off topic but I ended up going with 185/55/15's on those plus 38's. No rub this far, crosses fingers XD

That looks very well done. What did you harvest the cooler from? Is that an OE one from another application?
