    Reverse flow intercooler pipe work

    Where can you get them from? I understand that the reason for changing the pipework is the air flow to the engine is shorter creating boost quicker and cooler air.Is this correct?

    If you PM Rufe, I think he said once he could get the original one that was fitted to the early 850's from Volvo.

    right let me get this right

    normaly the top boost pipe comes from the top of the turbo acrooss the engine and down the side of the engine to the bottom of the intercooler.

    so where does the pipe from the top of the intercooler normaly go to the throttle housing?

    so what pipes need to be changed when reversing?
    do you need a diferant throttle housing samco bit?

    This is getting confusing to fit the reverse flow you will need to get rid of your old i/c setup all you have to do is run a pipe from the turbo to the top of the intercooler then a pipe from the bottom of the intercooler to the throttle housing inbetween the pipe from the bottom of the intercooler and the throttle body there is a pipe that goes to the idel controll valve

    That why i said make your own you will probley make one for around 100 all you need is a good lenght of pipe and then all of the silicone elbows
    i think you will need 3 x 90 bends, a T peice for your bov, a rew straight joints and another Tpeice for the pipe to the idel controll valve
