It shouldn't add price. Should equal out. Because since you dont have the need for custom flanges or specific endtanks you would use silicone hose. An that's not that expensive. And if it does add price it could be cheaper in the long run for people who upgrade their turbos. Especially the TD04 guys who could totally pass on a vf52 and go 16g-18g.I'm sure they could, but that would add to price significantly I'd imagine.
