View Full Version : TIP advice...

Anybody actually recommend an after market Turbo Inlet Pipe? I mean if the oem one is fine, will you notice a difference on a 20psi-ish k03 or k04?

I bought one as my stock one had a nice hole in it, it was on sale, don't have to worry about it anymore.

I'm stock so i noticed no difference other than a little more "woosh"? Maybe it would help with a chip and/or K04?

have heard the stock TIP will possibly flatten when it sees more psi..idk just what i've read.

Unless there is a problem with it(leak or tear) I don't think there is a reason besides "had a $150 burning a hole in my pocket". I purchased an APR one from ECS and I don't think it did anything for me.

Rumor has it that it does nothing. If you're having problems collapsing the stock one (not common) then I'd upgrade or replace it.

I don't see the need, unless you want to hear your DV more.(MK4's have a lot of DV noise from and A/M TIP)

When should you upgrade? K04/GTRS? Or will the stock tube be ok with those also?

I wont be upgrading until i get the GTRS in. You should be fine with a K04. Probably wouldnt hurt you to upgrade though.

on that note, do you need a hard TIP (giggidy) or can you run a sillicone with the GTRS elim.? sorry for thread jack.
