Not a bad looking setup. I would suggest ditching the hose clamps and actually getting T-Bolt clamps. You're going to start getting hoses blowing off and boost leaks.

theres T-bolt clamps on all charge pipes, only hose clamps on the intake, coolant, and the IAC hose, which does see boost, but its hasnt blown off yet , im pretty sure it wont either.

i go to a shop who bought the CX kit for a 90-93, and it fit right in, with the exception of the downpipe, and the kit pretty much went on flawlessly, but if your going to be using this for a 94-97, id be more than happy to try and get come closer pictures and how you where the cuts were, and how to route it.
thanks but I have a NB so i'd probably run into more issues than it would be worth.
