Default BoV & PiPes Setup

Hello one and all !
I'm finally getting around to installing an IC to my standard Greddy kit in my Mk1.
I know there are lots of different ICs out there along with lots of different pipe setups.
What I'm planning is an over the rad (or fitting a smaller rad and go around each side) setup for the IC as I want the pipes to be as small and as straight as possible....and also to be able to refit my engine brace after clocking the Greddy !
So, my question is this.
Does anyone have 'good/detailed' pictures of the piping setup for the Bov etc ?
I know it goes onto the main intake for the injector housing but what about those other pipes down there ?
Does one of them just get plugged up or what ?
Thanks in advance for any and all help with this......I wanna get it right the first time and not have to go messing with the pipes afterwards

i would take a good look at stripe's intercooler kit
http://mx5projects.com/Greddy%20Intercooler.asp

no need to hack anything up or modify anything and no need for a smaller radiator. Top quality hardware and rock solid mounting. I gained a ~1-1.5 of boost over my starion without changing anything.

Sweet, but there's no engine brace in those pics and I want to put mine back in.
I'll be clocking the Greddy when the IC is ready to go in also, and front mount the AFM (horrible thing that AFM).
I can't see any Bov in those pics btw !!

bov is in there, it's down under the upper radiator hose, a little tough to see in the pictures. I'm also not too sure what you mean by an engine brace. If you mean strut tower brace you'll just need to reroute your afm, which is a project i still have to take on to do mine. Also if you're clocking your turbo stripes can probably accomodate you as it's only a small part of the piping setup that needs to be changed.

I will be selling my Starion Pipes, with a greddy bov soon. I am selling it as one unit. I have a starion IC w/ modded 2" inlet and outlet, custom aluminum brackets for it, and 2.5in coldside and 2in hotside pipe diameter. Will not fit with A/C, is made to fit my setup but can easily fit the hotside of a greddy.

Yup, it's the strut tower brace that I'm trying to get back onto the car.
I've been reading about all the different ways to pipe the IC for the Mx5/Miata and it seems that all want to clock the Greddy afterwards in order to relocate the AFM. Hence why I want to clock mine right at the start and have a smoother piping layout.
AndyFloyd, I'd like to know more about the parts your selling but I'd say P&P to Ireland would kill any good price you've got in mind unfortunitly
