I spent Saturday afternoon re-routing my intake pipe on my T8 with FMIC
I've only done the turbo/compressor side so far..
as these pipes hang a tad low, so when I lower the car by -40mm they might/would be in danger of hitting speedhumps etc etc..

I needed a flexible top rad hose as well to clear the new intake pipe(thanks Mr Volvo)its from a 940 turbo, but is the same as a 850 T5 item..

the intake pipe is like before a mix'n'match from Saab & Volvo (9K & 940)

But on the down side I've had to loose the headlamp wash/wiper & move the 2nd horn to gain space for the intake pipe route...
but this could be classed as weight saving

my old intake pipe & rad hose


no horn & wash/wiper
