ELEVATE designed this high-flowing alternative to the stock
Volvo C30 T5 hard pipe and related hoses between the turbo outlet and
intercooler inlet. Replacing the potentially restrictive stock piping
and hoses allows maximum power to be generated by your Volvo. The stock
hard pipe has just under a 2" (50mm) outside diameter, with the ELEVATE
Intercooler Hard Pipe featuring 2.5" (63.5mm) outside diameter.
Our hard pipe is manufactured of quality steel for maximum strength (as
the pipe is located under the car) with high flowing, clean mandrel
bends. Mounting tabs pick up the factory mounting points for ease of
installation. The pipe is powder coated in your choice of Bright Silver
The vulnerable, stock rubber hoses are replaced with high quality
four-ply silicone hoses for lasting performance. Rubber hoses
deteriorate over time due to ozone, high underhood temperatures, and
exposure to oil. Silicone has the benefit of being far more resilient
to all three of these factors. Our silicone hoses expand less under
boost, better transferring the boosted air from the turbo to the engine.
We offer the silicone hose sections in Black, Blue or Red, allowing
you to retain a stock appearance or match color themes on your car.
To cover all applications, we offer hose sections for both the stock K04
turbo and the aftermarket K16 turbo upgrade. For use only on FWD

outlet with the throttle body.
