Default Intercooler setups

Can some of you post pictures of your intercooler installs and what size I/Cs you're using? How are you routing your piping? I plan on keeping P/S and A/C in my car and as such, I don't seem to have enough room to put in the intercooler I have (fleabay 25x6x2.5). I also don't see how I can route the hotside piping. I'm thinking of getting an MSM I/C or one of similar size. I don't really have access (or skill) to fabrication tools, so this has to be done pretty ghetto with whatever I find to make brackets with. Thanks!

That's great Joe. I gotta save this image for the next intercooler request post.

Messiahx, check out my website at the top of the page.(mx5projects.com) This will give you a pretty good idea on how to run your pipes with AC and PS.

Seriously though. Here's a link to the thread I posted last year on my I/C setup: https://www.miataturbo.net/showthrea...348#post151348 I added a couple of new pictures today to help illustrate the overall plan of the lower pipes.
