    Need your help

    Hey so I just got most of my project car done, a 1986 Audi 4000, and now I need to move on to the intercooler. I was wondering if you guys knew about a good diy way/ a good site to get piping and couplers, and how to go about all this....

    Cheers

    If its an audi I'm assuming the intercooler is either on the passanger or drivers side of the front bumper... they sell front mount kits online that include the piping... id look into that first...

    yep thats how im doin it. but i saw this guy with the same car that had a sort of "flexible" piping. I dunno how to explain it its kinda like plumbing material.... and he said it worked like a charm, so that would take the measuring and fitting part out of all of it.

    anyone got any ideas where i can find some "flexible piping" like that?

    lol this one kid I know, used freakin PVC pipe as his intercooler piping on an older toyota. I was laughing my ass off, histerical!!! You can take it to a custom fabricator who can make a pipe for you after he looks at it and see's how the routing should go. Other then that, yea just use piping from a kit, or find something comparable. I dont like the flex hoses due to the fact that most are rigid inside, which wouldn't create even airflow in the piping. just my 2 cents
