    Default is this an intercooler pipe?

    [IMG]file:///C:/Users/rich/Desktop/intercooler%20pipe.jpg[/IMG]hi guys,
    recently found out that my intercooler pipe has split badly (garage diagnosed dead MAF sensor)
    some has offered me this for £30 with postage.
    does it look like the correct pipe (pipe on the table?)
    i need to replace the pipe in the engine picture at the front


    thanks guys

    thanks bobssignum for replying. im always wary about these type of things. dont want to buy then find its useless.
    is £30 expensive for it?

    yes it does look like the same pipe, however i would not buy a second hand boost pipe for £30 it looks like it's had a hell of a lot of use & may only last a week.
    duct tape (plenty of it) will hold the old pipe until you find a suitable replacement.
    I ran my dti with duct tape for 3 weeks with no bother
