Pre turbo flexpipe alternatives

I don't like the idea of a flexible tube full of woven wire in front of my turbo. What is a good alternative? Is there any way to calculate thermal expansion in a given lenth of pipe ( is the flex pipe really necessary)


For everything that is worthwhile, there is a counterfeit.

You don't need a flex pipe before the turbo.

usually a good idea to run them on single turbo cars. Alleviates any stress caused by metal expansion/movement and misalignment in the hot side.

these types are safer I believe.

I will say OEM's have been using them for years. If you get a good one, it won't give you trouble.

you can get them without the weave on the inside.
