Looks like stock (which is a very good thing).

Is the new pipe that runs along the top of the radiator to the engine a fuel pipe, if it is I would be very worried. The specification for fuel pipe suitable for use with modern pump petrol is SAEJ30R9, the ethanol that is put into petrol rots earlier materials in about 2 years, there have been many fires as a result in older classics and newer vehicles fitted with the wrong hose. The DIN 73379 hose that has been used on yours is an earlier spec (equivalent to R6/R7 spec) and if used needs changing every 2 years.

to SWCeed: i dont know where you see a new pipe that runs at the top of radiator. that is an old pipe from radiator.
only pipes there are from IC and one you can see on the right side, where the blow off valve is and the other line is underneath the car that goes to turbine.

to FrEaKZoIdE: engine really looks like stock, you can only see pipe from IC and blow off valve . it will be even better when protective cover goes on top.

will post more pics when all is done

The new pipe is about 7.5mm internal diameter and has clean white lettering on it. It runs from the bottom right hand corner of the photo along the top of the radiator/fan area and then turns up the photo and 1/2 way up turns right, possibly into the fuel rail.

It is obviously new since the lettering is still clean and white.

to SWCeed: i have talked to guys in shop and they told me that the hose they used is from Forch and that it is a standard service hose that they use...
can you tell me where did you get that info from because i cant really find anything bad about that hose on google. also, there are different types of DIN 73379 hoses.
maybe post a link so i can read some references?
thanks!

Fuel pipe research (long!) - for discussion!

This is probably the most informative piece of info but even this is incomplete, it does not tell you that R10 hose is unsuitable to be used in the atmosphere, its designed to be used in tank. Sellers have tried in the past to sell me R10 as being suitable for normal use, its not, it will rot form the outside in, suppose its easy to see what's happening if its in clear view.

To add to the confusion there is lots of Chinese fuel hose out there that is sold as R9, its not, been there, done that. The stainless steel braided is the worst culprit, buyers think it looks like race quality stuff and its not. Just cheap thin rubber covered in braid. The proper race hose is lined with PTFE and requires special fittings which cost more than the actual hose. Hers is a link Aeroquip smooth bore TFE hose & fittings

Don't skimp on fuel hose, with fuel at around 3 bar normally any leak is a big one as will be the accompanying fire. Your red hot turbo is not far from that pipe.

If you are happy fine but their comment that the hose needs changing every 3 or 4 years appears to me to be an admission that it is not the correct hose. OEM fuel hoses do not require changing so why should hose fitted by a tuning company. Would they have told you this if I had had not raised the issue.
