Well 700hp doesn't exactly explain how much boost, plus it's obviously a compromise for very tight quarters with little room for play. At the very least, my opinion will stay with metal piping because hoses and stuff wear out, even if it's high grade stuff, cold weather, hot weather etc. all lead to rotted and ballooned hoses. With metal piping even if the couplers wear out you can replace them much cheaper than replacing all of your ducting.

9-10.5psi is what the TT C6 is running. I'm sure it sucked, they must be cutting costs just like FM is.

i wonder if I can just buy FM's silicon piping? That would be much easier than twisting up pipe and welding that ****.
