Turbo inlet pipes

I have been asked about these, I make these also just hadnt got round to posting them up.

Basically, whatever diameter you need, whether it be for a K04 conversion or 63mm intakes for RS6/Loba/TTE etc

304 Stainless steel
Mandrel bent
TIG welded and purged
£Unsure on price atm, will update asap.

And 50mm

Can you do the 63mm pipes with a 50mm connection to the turbo for standard RS6 and K04?

Are there flow straightners in the pipes?

Yes, I can taper them down to a smaller diameter, but I dont put flow straighteners in.
Its just my opinion, but I think they are  hindrance more than a help.

Once the turbo is up to speed, air thats is being forced straight at great velocity into a compressor wheel spinning at 100,000+ rpm for example, must cause some sort of unnecessary resistance. If the air is allowed to start spinning earlier, wouldnt that eliminate some of that resistance, reduce spool up time and flow more easily at higher engine speeds/loads etc? Allowing the air to "merge" with the compressor wheel, like a motorway slip road versus a junction.

Another example, fill up a bottle with water and then tip it upside down, what happens? It bottle necks. Do the same again, but this time spin the bottle, it empties much quicker and with as little restriction as the diameter of the neck will allow.

I know alot of the restriction with the water and the bottle is air trying to fill the space that the water is vacating, but its just an example. Given than there are specific programs which run CFD (computational fluid dynamics) simulations, this would be one way of doing some sort of scientific simulations with credible conclusions, rather than just my opinion.

Again, just what I have learned from reading up on airflow etc, if people are desperate for them I can put them in, just wanted to let people know why I dont use them. HTH.

Heh very nice answer, I was asking really for completeness,.

I do believe in them but further up the pipes not right before the turbo, on the RS2 they use to be part of the MAF

however your answer makes total sense
