Default intercooler piping problem

has anybody ever had the plastic pipe just before it goes into the fender shatter on them before? i was getting on the highway today and was getting on it and next thing i knew i heard a loud pop so i pulled over to find that piece blew into a couple pieces. also does anybody happen to have a used one youd like to sell?

I'd say this would be a good time just to do an intercooler upgrade, suprastore has a whole kit for 400 bucks I was looking at myself.

If not I'm sure you could find find the pipe at a scrap yard or just fab a pipe yourself with some silicone or pvc tubing. If its the piece I'm thinking of its quite the bottleneck in the intake system.

The constant heating, cooling, and never being soaked in a oil solution probably was the cause. I would say go for a upgrade, it will help your car run a little cooler.

Good luck.

does that intercooler kit from suprastore come with the complete piping or do you have to use some of your old piping cause from what i see in the pictures that wont get me all the way from the turbo to the intake?

Hm, didn't notice that I assumed it would and it says that what you get is exactly as pictured. Good thing you noticed that, I'm not gonna bother with that now, two pipes and an intercooler screw that idk how I didnt notice that sooner

I found another setup, there's likely a lot more included than you'd use though. It comes with ALL the piping, new intercooler, wastegate, bov, turbo timer, header, a replacement turbo and a few other goodies. It's about a grand with shipping though. But its one heck of a kit for the price and it would eliminate a lot of things down the road, and its always good to have a spare turbo god forbid yours craps out.
