Hi guys,

I have the stock IC pipes with the stock IC.

I found someone who is willing to just sell one hard pipe that goes over the intake from Greddy 3 row IC. I want it for adding a BOV purpose only.

My question is will this Greddy 3 row IC hard pipe which goes over the intake fit into the stock plastic pipe which is right before the fender going towards the stock IC ? Will the size of the stock hose fit the Greddy 3 row IC pipe?

Thanks a million!!!
Tim

My guess is that it wouldn't work. If you find out for sure that it won't, I have the hardpipe for the Blitz BOV. It's the same hardpipe with the Blitz kit. It goes in front of the throttle body. The reason I am not using it anymore is because I got a FMIC and welded a flange to my new pipes. Let me know if you are interested in buying it. It needs to go.

I believe he is referring to the other side.
The GReddy hardpipe that goes above Air Filter intake to the fender looks like it may fit perfect ... I know the pipe will fit the engine side, the fender side of the pipe looks close. Try fitting it, wouldn't hurt none...

Tim, dude the funniest thing is I just bought the exact same thing over the internet today!! After we talked last time I posted that question for you about the custom hard pipes over on NEMKIV.com. Henri answered and it seems way easier and cheaper to just buy a already finished hard pipe. One of the replies to my post was a guy who said he had the Greddy hard pipe you need.. when I finally caught up with him thru e-mail I immediately snapped it up. Actually I was going to surprise you and see if you wanted it, he was cool and sold it to me for a good price. I know they are tough to find so I thought since you have mentioned it a few times I'd make one magically appear.

So I say buy it. That way we will both have one and we can surely figure it out if there is any mounting problems. I actually didn't think to ask if it would fit the fender side either! :) But if you think about it, it should. The rubber pipe that goes over the airbox is one diameter all the way thru. So that means each end has the same size opening.. just like the hard pipe. Just make sure the guy you buy it from gives you the rubber connectors and hose clamps to save a trip to the store!

Thanks guys for the help. But the guy sold it to someone else which sucks now cause I have to look for one more. If anyone on else has one please let me know. Hard pipe over the intake is what I need.

Hey Phil, nice to hear that you bought one. I can't believe you have one now, I want one too! I wanted to suprise you as well but you beat me to it.

Anyway I try to definitely get one. I'll come by this weekend to take a look.

Thanks,
Tim

Sorry again, Taimur - but my friend Matt has one as well. He posted above under the name Blackbird. You can see his pipe in his signature. Email him that you want the pipe and he'll sell it to you for sure. He and I are doing our single turbos projects together, so he won't need the pipe much longer. Like he said, it will work just fine, and he'll include the Greddy blue connectors for both ends. His does not have the HKS flange, though.

See, I didn't leave you high and dry after all. ;)

Take Care -
John

i had the hks pipe that goes over the intake connect to the stock plastic pipe in the fender wall that goes to the stock ic. after a few weeks the stock plastic pipe had melted inward at the edge of it where it connects and caused a boost leak. i am going to suggest not using any of the stock pipes unless its temporary.

Thanks John. I'll contact Matt.

But Tommy Nim pointed out a new dilemma. How would you go around the heat produced by the aluminum pipe and not cause the stock plastic pipe to melt?

Answers appreciated?? :)

I really didn't want to spend $400 to get a hard pipe kit for only a BOV, its not worth it. So I want ro try this method.

Thanks,
Tim.

Based on the experience I've had, there is no dilema. I ran the Apexi hardpipe kit with the stock IC on my black '94 bpu. That kit does NOT come with a replacement pipe for the plastic fender elbow, so you use the stock plastic elbow. I never had even a remote problem with it. Matt bought that same kit back from Shawn (who I sold the car to) and used it on his car for months until he installed his front mount. Again, no problem using the aluminum pipe in conjunction with the stock plastic elbow and stock IC.

Like so many other things here on Supraforums there is a huge difference of opinion on if this will work or not. I will try it myself!

Tim the Greddy pipe I am getting is yours if your deal falla thru. I bought it with the idea of selling it to you anyway (of course for a good price) :).

Tim, buy the one from John's friend for like $30 bucks.. that is what I paid.. $35 in total to ship it to me (should be here in a few days)

I want one too.. that is why i said that. BUT, if you can't find one.. the one I have is yours.

mervinn and Taimur, I'd be interested in one of these pipes if you guys have an extra one after it is all said and done.

Matt.. I checked out your website.. in some of the pictures the pipe that goes goes over the airbox has a weld in the middle of it and in some it doesn't. The one with the weld on it looks like a custom pipe, 2 45 degree angle pipes welded together. The other pipe appears to be straighter pipe. I am assuming this one is the Greddy.

I was just wondering why you had the 2 different ones?

The one with the weld in the middle was my old used Apexi Hard pipes that I sold when I got the Greddy 3 row. The guy who I bought the apexi pipes from wanted to keep the red connectors and he replaced them with the blue greddy ones.
