Default Intake manifold piping issue!

So I am running a Godspeed rad with stock fans and I have no room to run piping down. I am doing an a/c delete on my car do I need the a/c or can I delete ? I don't know what to do please help me or give me options. This is my first turbo build so any help is appreciated!

You're not being very descriptive of your issue. There are many ways to run intercooler piping and everyone does it differently. If you don't need your A/C then go ahead and take it out to give yourself more options. You may need to clock your turbo and you really need to use the search feature and see what others are doing before you start a thread.

The best way to get help is to start a build thread and post images of your process. This way no one ***** on you for your lack of knowledge when there is already a plethora of information on here regarding your issue.

That "let me google search that for you" is priceless!

Keep the AC, run the hot side IC tube through the fender. Search for TurboTim and Hornetball build threads for documentation.

I'm trying to figure out how I kept my a/c and added a turbo. BRB, going to check my build thread and maybe a few others.

Here's what I did: I looked at the compressor and put pipes around it.

That sounds way too simplistic. The easiest way probably actually involves at least two turbos and three glasspacks, depending upon who you ask.
