It does look a bit hill billyish doesn't it? I wonder how well that pvc pipe would hold up to engine bay temps? Otherwise, if he get's the fuel pressure & boost right, it would be ok for a while.

haha yeah i think id rather spend more than 1300 and know my set up will last more than the quick lap of the block before it either A, burns because it leaking fuel B, runs out of oil leaking from the oil inlet to the turbo or C, pipe melts / shatters under boost while hes seeing how god it is haha then tell him that he went wrong the cheap a** bastard

I think that's fair enough. I could see the reason to dummy it up in PVC to work out how it will all fit, but to keep it that way & actually run it. :shock:
