Default Intercooler pipe routing.

I was wanting to know if anyone had some pictures of how they routed their piping for the intercooler. I bought a 7x26 intercooler off of ebay and universal piping and couplers. I have mounted the intercooler and would like some sugestions of where to route the piping. I have a stock greddy kit with the stock elbows intake and charge side. I'm scratching my head trying to figure out how to get back up to the turbo and intake manifold. I've searched and found a couple of pictures in the forums, but not enough to put it together. Any help would be greatfull. This is the last step to getting my miata back on the track.

Thanks, Tyler

I dont have any pictures of my setup, and its 25 degrees and 2 am so im not about to take any pics, but what I have as my setup before I clocked the turbo was running the piping down where the PS/A/C would be and then having the pipe wrap around my rad. For the intake side the pipes wrap around the other side of the rad and then rise vertically up and into the Throttle body. If you have PS or A/C it will make the piping a bigger challenge.

Mine is routed the same way as this guy. I'm guessing you still have A/C PS. The PO had a T25 and he cut a hole in the fender well and ran it through that. The cold side is the still the same though. Can't take any pics either cause the engine is out of the car so I can't help much further. Good luck

Ditto on the routing, clocked is the way to go if you don't have PS.

Thank whoever took/made these pics. You can scrap it up anyway you want, just get it connected.
