Intercooler piping...

Ok, I've read and read and read some more in researching things about intercooler piping on this site. Alot of threads are outdated (2011-2013) so I'm hoping that in the 2-3 more years that the cars have been on the road, that aftermarket companies have come out with just pipes instead of complete FMIC kits.

No interest in adding an IC, I just want that ugly plastic piping gone!

The pipe circled in red for those that don't know what I'm referring to.


So, in 2015, is there anyone that just sells the piping to the intercooler? Or am I stuck and have to buy a whole friggin kit just to replace one pipe?

some custom exhaust shops due custom IC piping. i considered asking one around my area to do it for me but i have other projects im throwing money at so i decided to just leave it as is. might be worth it to check it out though.

Yea it's not that important to me to go experimenting with random exhaust shops or making my own. If there was an option to buy the piping then sure, I'd buy it. But not whole kits,etc... I can spend the money on other mods, visual mods, etc...

Yea I looked at the CX kit but I already have an aftermarket SRI so I trumped that idea. I'll have to look into the color hose kit. I don't want to retain anymore heat than what's there already, but I definetly want to clean it up under the hood a bit

if i remember correctly another member here already had a SRI and called CXracing and got them to drop the price a little and send just the intercooler kit and piping without the SRI.

Still a little steep from a "cosmetic" stand point although it also does serve a purpose from what I've been reading to upgrade the piping.

I know this is an old thread, but do you know if they ditched the cruze intercooler? I'm looking at the cxracing website and they don't have anything listed for the cruze
