Improving flow into the engine is a fundamental concept for increasing power from the engine. This becomes more critical when adding other upgrades such as Intake upgrades or Exhaust upgrades including a larger Turbo.
The JMTC ICI (Intercooler to Intake Manifold) pipe upgrade uses 2.25" alloy piping and runs from the intercooler to the intake manifold with almost no restrictions and minimal bends for maximum flow. This pipe replaces the factory restrictive plastic piping and eliminates the useless 'sound generator' (on some models).
The optional Ceramic Coating insulates the intake charge from the engine heat preserving the cooled post-intercooler intake charge. The Ceramic Coating is available in Black or Red.

NOTE: The performance improvement is real, but it is a TIGHT fit! The installation requires removal of some of the structure around the engine compartment including headlights, but it fits and works well. Allow at least 2-3 hours for installation.
