    Nothing much is going to happen by replacing one hose with another. But it does look nice.

    If you have a squeal, you may have an air leak. I had this when i upgraded the intercooler and ended up blowing the pipe off. I replace all my clips with 't clips' which are a bolt type jubilee clip. Much better and stopped all the sqealing

    Might get a small difference if you have smoothed the pipe or increased the bore. But i agree nothing significant

    If you look closer I think you'll find he replaced one hose with a metal pipe and 2 hose elbows!

    Indeed he did.

    Possibly not as smooth a passage of air as the original item then (those joints)?

    Still, it looks good.
