Another big day....

Full cred to my fabricator - the man is an artist - look at that pipework through the side of the engine bay.....

Very nice work. How small(diameter) did he need to go to get through there and for what length?

it's 38mm ss pipe - and about 400-600mm of fabricated section (mainly made up of short sections of bend to get clearance over the intake etc.......

Once the internal lining in the guard goes back in, you wont even see that it is there until it pops out just near the IC join.

My turbo fabricator/assistant in modification's car is here:

So you can see Max is in good hands.....
