Default Show me some hotside IC pipe routing

Looking for a few pictures of how some of you did your hotside IC piping if your turbo was clocked down.

I have the cold side all done from my past turbo kit, but with the new Rotrex it is clocked down VS. my old Greddy and it's going to have 2.5'' piping VS. 2'' piping. I need to see some pics so I can order up what I need. I *think* I know what I need but a few extra pictures won't hurt.

Thanks in advance.

Just google images of fm/begi traditional routing. that's what the majority of members here go with.

I think it will be much easier with the rotrex since its more forward and shouldn't be hitting the a/c lines (if you have ac)

I'll post a pic of mine when i get home it's really easy clocked down. I just have a 90 degree silicone coupler that goes from 2 inch off the turbo to 2.5 inch for the ic piping , then a straight pipe with like 140 degrees of a u bend into the intercooler

Your blower sits high enough that you have no problems.

No AC or PS.

I think what I will do is

2'' straight off the Rotrex to a 90* 2.0'' to 2.5'' reducer. Then a straight pipe coupled to a 45* and then that should slide into the 90* coupler on the end of the IC.

I want to use stuff I have already to save costs, which is why I'm running 6'' of a 2'' pipe off the end of the Rotrex. No money left... lol

thanks for the pics guys.

I threw the rotrex on my other miata sitting in my garage and took a good look I think I know what I'll be needing
