                    The benefit is that a metal hose will expand less than a silicon one when on boost. Basically why you have a silicon one over the standard rubber one.

                    You do however reqiure some flexability as the engine will move backwards and forwards.

                      thanks mate, it will have silicone attachments so that seems good, thanks for the reply tho.

                        be warned i had a nice blue power pipe from a certain company on the gsi. it did not alow for the amount of engine rock produced and torn the mount for the intercooler pipe from the rad. however it did look nice.
