Decided to go with the CSF intercooler from mike@x-ph.com . Can someone point me to a good but not super expensive hard pipe kit that will fit easily and straight forward with this intercooler?

Cant wait till the rona blows over so I can get this car to stage 2

CTS turbo makes really high quality charge pipes with excellent fitment, for a turbo outlet you don't have to replace it since the factory one is a single piece of extremely tough woven fiber around a rubber interior which will not break like the brittle plastic chargepipe. But if you must replace it ER and FTP motor sports makes a good replacement.

Congrats

Active Autowerke, VRSF and Evolution Racewerks charge pipes are the most popular for us.

Do you mind doing some before and after logging?

If I have the tune before or way to log before I do the intercooler I'll see what I can do

Thank you, wondering if anyone had any install experience with the CSF and which individual set of pipes were easiest to fit to the CSF intercooler

I put one on my car. No fitment issues. Pretty much all the different intercoolers will work with all the different pipes as they're designed to plug up to stock components if desired.
