Hey Rob when you say intake elbow are you talking about the throttle bottle elbow? I purchased charge tubes for the 2.0 this year but never thought about replacing OEM rubber with DDM silicone upper radiator hose, intake elbow and LNF intake tube.consider getting the intake elbow
2nd that. No more power, but the after market ones are much better carried out. I went polished alloy, but given that it is really a visual improvement only with a stock turbo, any colour that you fancy is supportable. I believe DDM make quiet a range and can do custom if you like.If you're talking about the pipes to/from the intercooler, I don't believe there is any appreciable increase in HP/TQ, but I did notice smoother acceleration over the OE smashed pipes, plus they just look a lot cooler!
