That's interesting. I'm running a modified version of the Stripes kit and i didn't have to cut any holes. you're cutting into the radiator support or something?

Well, if it were me, I would order all the right alluminum bends and weld them up. I really don't have any experience with installing IC's but I know you don't want your pipes too low and risk them ever hitting the ground. I probably sound retarded as I've never done this before.

This will probably sound stupid too, but I'm doing some research on building a intercooler setup. I'm considering making pipe that goes my SC to the intercooler cooper, as conducts heat 70% better than Al. If may even make an intercooler. I need to source some 2" copper tubing. It's expensive new, but I'm going to check around and see what I can find.

Right, you said suggestions...

Wouldn't it be better to clock that turbo pointing down as that would move that pipe away from the fender and minimize the length of the pipe to reach the intercooler? That may not be practical and again I'm no turbo guy. All I know is it's something to do with snails that get hot and make air move.
