    well ebay have boost pipes with various diameters and degree bends so i'm sure 2 90 degree bends should make one up.

    Hello, Mine has been replaced by a steel mesh reinforced model from Gates when it blew up (the left-hand one, the one that comes out of the intercooler), and as you can imagine, it newer blew again !

    When mine split i got the vx modyfied one. It was about £110 for the 3 pipes (you cant buy separate) but it was well worth it as ive had no problems with the pipes since. only problem i have had is the clip holding them on, but i got a heavy duty one and problem solved!
