Yet another one for a step up on the inlet hose quality.

- It fit my IHI VF34 with some work... the ID where the pipe actually connects to the turbo could probably stand to be a few mm larger, but with some alcohol and a lot of stretching/swearing it went on.

-The BOV return opening just plain stunk. It is placed way too far down to where about 1/3 of the outside of the piece hits the block. This was the biggest pain in the butt I've seen for what should be a very simple install (we're hardly doing engine work here). I'd definitely suggest adjusting the mold and making that BOV return pipe placement reflect that of the stock piece.

-Lots of chunks of silicon and frayed threads wherever there is a seem. Looks like it is held together fine but with no finishing work done. I spent quite a while trying to get rid of the excess material because I'd hate to think of what would happen if a little piece of silicon decided to break loose and find its way into my turbo.

This is the only Perrin product I've owned... all and all I'm not too upset as it was a great price and it most certainly works and should last longer than the stock piece. However, the apparant lack of QC makes me extremely hesitant to look towards Perrin for any other parts.
