My car is soon out of warranty soon so Im looking at changing a few things,
In the future I'm going for the Tegiwa airbox, and want to know what is the best intake pipe, to connect this to the engine

I have seen these on ebay

Problem with silicone hoses on an intake is that they can collapse when the car is under load due to the suction effect from the engine. TBH I would look at something like either a custom metal pipe or using the pipe from a HKS premium suction kit.

Yeah the silicone ones can deform. Best have a metal one, the OEM one is pretty good as well if you can clean it up.

Is it worth changing then
I asked Tdi North the same thing recently when changing to the Mugen kit and they said the OEM pipe couldn't really be bettered :)
