The rest of sucks ass.... and I don't blame you for waiting another day. Being tired and frustrated is not a good thing when wrenching on cars.
No it absolutely did NOT fit. I'll take a picture of it tomorrow evening and post it. the stock elbow fits loosely INSIDE the racepipe.. no way, no how is that going outside.. It would have to stretch over 1/2" in diameter to fit. We tried.. The 2" racepipe works, a 2.25" pipe would work with some heat and PB blaster, maybe.. 2"I.D. rubber ain't gonna stretch to 2.5" I.D. without ripping.

The turbo outlet went on fine.. that little hose stretches just enough..

I went out to the car and took a pic. It's an Allard piece and my rough eyeball measurement using a ruler is 2.25" - 2" seems too small and 2.5" seems too big. I didn't have a pair of channel locks to remove the hose and check the actual diameter but if it's different than 2.25", I'll post it up.

Ya that's the 2.25", possibly even 2" I.D. either way that looks like it would stretch on without too much grief. the 2.5 is quite a bit bigger, the stock spring clamp wouldn't even fit on the bare race pipe, haha

Bring em... if the fuel system gives us any crap we'll just do the springs instead, that is unless the pump swap goes quickly, then we'll do both..

Yeah, your right. THere's NO WAY to get that question mark upper hose onto a 2.5" race pipe. Mine is stretched tightly over a 2.25". I had to use a different OEM clamp because the stock one won't even fit over the hose while it's on the 2.25" so the 2.5" is way out of the question LOL. Not a chance. The 17/22 compressor outlet hose is a walk in the park compared to a 2.5" race pipe with the stock rubber hose!

Couldn't imagine there would be too many TDI's at something like that... Mostly Hondas & Acuras & street bikes from what I hear.... I'd be down for checking it out though....

Would this work?
http://www.siliconeintakes.com/produ...771ec4fa640a80

This would go from the 2" upper intercooler pipe onto the 2.5" race pipe...
I'm hoping it can be made to work....

I still can't see using a race pipe smaller than 2.5" on that PD150 IM.

Ya dude.. that elbow will work fine.. we might need to order something else from them as well depending on how the intercooler fight turns out..

Great progress despite the snags!

I'll be at the shop tomorrow afternoon to drop off my car. My intercooler pipes will arrive tomorrow, although my UPS guy stops at my house last. You will have my PD150 intake manifold and my street toys (2.25") race pipe to play around with all of next week.

*sorry to hyjack your thread, Joe*

Default 11mm pump & PP502's installed last night!!

Damn, now that's a power upgrade! Holy crap it smokes like a Kenworth...

The pump & nozzles went right in, very smooth... no snags last night....

It started up nice & ran smooth.... with a slight shudder (IQ was at ZERO lol)
Adjusted the IQ an it was perfect....

I guess this coming up Tuesday, We'll mess around with the 3 Bar MAP, intercooler, piping, and PD150 Intake manifold....

After that, I have a new Boost/EGT combo gauge, Koni Sport springs, and the PD Lift pump....
