Default Begi Intake Pipe for Greddy?

I am still in searching of the best position for my AFM.

Since - its in the way for me to install Front Tower bar
- Bring the intake forward closer to the headlight air duct.

Has anyone fab a piece that looks like BEGI 1.6 KIT for Greddy turbo?

most people just attach the AFM directly onto the turbo inlet. Most likely that puts your intercooler pipes in the way.

Even with just a 90* you're going to have trouble wedging it in there, without doing a nice "S" pipe like BEGi. I haven't seen anyone do something like that on a greddy and using BEGi's probably wouldn't work.

They replaced the pipe with something similar : http://img174.imageshack.us/my.php?image=1000293kf5.jpg

now here's the impoartant part, unless you do a 3-point shock tower brace, you really aren't doing anything, and even then, it's just cowl shake/flex.

you know whats funny mimime, i was thinking the EXACT same thing. when i saw that image the other day. but im not sure if its going to clear my intercooler piping the way i have it right now. but im sure if i re-clocked my turbo down and ran new piping that way there would b plenty of room.

I asked Corky if he would make a cold air box for the greddy. He said the idea was "interesting" and asked for drawings/rough mock up/or anything else that would assist him.

It'll be tough to make something universal for the greddy. I know my Starion JamesB I/C pipes are in the way.

I had found clocking the turbo with AC/PS is virtually impossible.
