    I was responding to gtman who seems to be laughing at how "poor" it looks. This is probably just for test fitment and seeing what clearance issues they're going to be running into.

    You totally missed the gist of my post. It was a joke. I was referring to how phallic the pipe looked in the pics and joking about Matt saying the pics had him "excited".:cool:

    I totally understand they are prototypes and 27Won does good stuff.

    Sheesh.

    Turbo Dick Pipe, can't argue with that.

    Welp, I'm bored and am out of modifications to do to my Civic.....with the exception of this and one other that hasn't been done yet by anyone. Sigh!
    So why not add even more fuel to the fire eh?

    Here's a post where Perrin added their turbo inlet pipe to an STi.
    Perrin Turbo Inlet Pipe

    The results? An increase of 100ft-lbs of torque down low and 10hp up top. **See below and read article**

    This ain't a Subaru I know (I love Subarus btw: I still own two). Just showing what this modification has done on other platforms to keep ya'll juices flowing. :p

    BTW: I see a horsepower coincidence between the two. :hmm:

    You are most certainly welcome. There was a part of the article that I found particularly interesting that you may want to consider into your project. This here....

    Want to bring this out in the open so you are not in a position of 're-inventing the wheel'. We keep reading of people trying to get more and more hp out of their engines. Would hate to see a great part overshadowed by a few or even one customer complaining of a collapsed turbo inlet hose. A 'cheaper' version could simply be a silicon hose while those with your 27Won turbo (Or PRL turbo, etc) can opt for the more expensive turbo inlet pipe with an exoskeleton. Heads up!

    And of course I put in italics that it was one of their best selling parts ever. $$$$ :thumbsup:
