Question AMS Upper Intercooler Piping Question?

I recently picked up, what seems to be the 'older' style Upper intercooler piping from AMS It looks like what, now comes as a separate silicone elbow, is a welded piece

I was wondering what silicone hose/bends I needed to get this to work on stock turbo/frame setup?

AMS said it looked 'different'

I can remove the hose I put at the end and measure if needed..


Link to what it looks like now, new from AMS

Thanks ahead

It looks like it should fit the same way as the new version. I'm guessing they went with silicone for easier install/fitment. I think, in the worst-case scenario, you could contact AMS about getting the silicone piece and then cut and bead-roll the pipe.
I hope you scored a hell of a deal on that piping because it looks ROUGH. Like prototype rough.

It's rough cause it is sand blasted, I own a powder coat company

I wasnt a fan of the 'brown' powder they had on it prior

I literally just found this pic, looks like they had a reducer silcione hose on it....

Ah, that makes sense. But even the welds seem a little bit rough for an AMS piece, or maybe I just expect too much! I'm sure they are functional and just look worse in bare metal.

The pipe already necks down a good deal but if you're missing the correct coupler, the OD of the stock turbo outlet is 1.75" so that's what you'll want to reduce down to.
