OK. Got the oil and water lines figured out, so the next step is to figure out where the hell to run the IC pipes. I've got a couple of issues: one is my RB tubular FSB and the RB brace that goes with that, and the other is my enormous 2" aluminum radiator.
I'm really curious about four things, and detailed photos would be bitchin:
1. Getting from the front mount, around the radiator with as much tire clearance as possible (I'm on 15x8 +40s so I already run the sway bar at full lock)
2. Getting around the front mount on the coldside as well
3. Clearing the lower radiator hose that runs into the side of the motor right where the turbo outlet is
4. clearing all the AC relays (AC/PS are gone, all the relays and the extra fan remain) and the huge radiator at the throttle body
I have my ideas; I think I can use a single 90 degree pipe, two 90 degree silicone couplers, and a single straight coupler to mate up with the FM coldside pipe I got from an M.net member who upgraded. I am totally lost on the hotside setup, though.
Samnavy, since you've got a T25 and a Begi EM, I'm really, really interested in your setup particularly. I did a quick search and I found Andy Floyd's setup, but I couldn't find any detailed pictures. What did everyone's setups end up entailing, how many couplers, etc? I'm probably going to order everything from Treadstone performance, and use t-bolt clamps. I'm not totally against going underneath the radiator with the pipes, but my car is really low (11.75" front) so I think I might have ground clearance issues if I did that.
