did you take any pics of the passenger side setup? what did you do about the towhook and that a/c canister?

Cut the tow hook off because it was directly in front of the IC outlet. The piping went around and behind the canister. I'll get more pics when I get the piping back.

I will note that with my core, I do not have to cut the tow hook heh.

Mark, I'd be interested to know roughly what you used where if you can give me a hint ;) Mine should be almost identicle to yours (and it is all in my head too ... since i don't have anything to gauge it against) Thanks

On the cold side, two 180s worked perfectly. One just has to be cut and reversed so it looks like an S.

Keep in mind that I did remove my airpump. Not sure if you have one? You could always try and relocate it, makes it dead easy to run the piping that side. I think it took us like 15mins :D

For the hot side, 90 off the turbo to a 45 over the motor to another 45 between the fan shroud/intake mani, to modified 90 to a modified 180 into the IC. If that makes sense. lol. The 180 off the IC had to be extended a little to get around the canister.

Like I said, i'll post more pics when I get the piping back. My bro took it all with him to get welded.

wow, that looks awesome. are you welding everything instead of using the couplers?

You have to use couplers to take some of the movement of the engine rocking.
