damnit, you're going to make my head pop one day.....buy stripe's piping kit and call it a day. At best all you'll have to do is cut the pipe a tad shorter into the intercooler and reposition the turbo outlet.

ah yes...i keep forgetting you have a 1.8. he is now just selling the piping kit for $225, but it would take a little extra work to make the throttle body end to line up.

2" hotside, then it transitions to 2.5" down below before the radiator into the intercooler. Then 2.5" the rest of the way to the TB.
