From what I can tell, the real gains would be from swapping the intercooler itself...especially if you would already go through the hassle of tearing apart the front end to swap the charge pipes.

Without other mods that would take advantage of them, no..probably not.

But with a tune and possibly a more aggressive compression wheel, definitely.

Unless they are leaking, theres no performance loss to them expanding a tad under pressure. I had rubber connectors in my Supra charge piping and that was a lot more airflow than the Cruze's cute little turbo.

What makes you think they are expanding?

Thats kinda scary, even at the 22 psi or so these little turbos can push, the charge piping should be able to hold on. I will have to defer to more experienced members if this is a known issue.
