The kit's background
Rye Field Model have released four Tiger 1-related kits with interiors, and have promised a fifth one. The first four kits suffered some criticism for omitting significant items from their engine compartments. Rye Field have moved to address this. The next kit will provide more details there, and also, they have released those parts as an "Upgrade solution" for some of their existing kits.
This product is named "Engine Pipeline Parts" and does not provide all of the items missing from the kits. It has the water pipes, the fan drives, the exhaust connectors, the ventilation riser and two brackets of the submersion gear. It does not provide baffle plates for the fans, the snorkel storage tube, pressure relief pipes, or details for the underside of the engine hatch, which would presumably be open to display the pipelines.
