going with over the rad, around the rad, or traditional routing?

Looks like the beginning of around the rad.

I started to do over the rad but that started to **** me off so i just cut a hole over in the headlight area and will route it through there. like you did with your hot side charge pipes coming off the turbo, but doing it on my cold side.

lol, right now the plan is to fab some low profile lights and just fix them in the up position, or do what Cspence did and mount some HID projectors in the turn signal ports.

I would def advise against the "always up" headlights.

You'll look like a douche.

turn signal projectors on the other hand = win

yeah im leanting towards the Turn signal route. i need to find some clear lense turnsignals to hack up so there wont be a open hole in there. i think im gonna box in the driverside headlight bucket and turn the barn door cover into a lid so my filter will be accessable.

+1, the always up headlights are lame. I think it was the PIAA lights people were installing in their turn signal ports for cheap. Those seem like a viable option with good light output.

I really didnt want to do the alway up lights but at first it seemed like my only option, then i started toying around with the lights in the turnsignal ports and thats the direction ill be taking!

i need to pick up a set of clear turnsignals to hack up for lense covers and so that there is not a big hole in the front of the car!

like theses.

Little update.

My $60 egay intercooler came in as well as my oil and coolant lines from ARTech. Also the ballast and bulbs I picked up from Cspence came in too. Because of that generous man, mounting HIDs in my turnsignal ports is gonna be easier for me!

on to pics!
