Default This elbow piece came in my Begi-S kit and I don't know what it is for...

Can't figure it out from the instructions/checklist and after searching and looking at pictures of other Begi-S installs I can't figure out what this piece is for? I'm guessing it is something for air intake, but I did not order the crossover tubing that usually comes with the kit because I have an ebay intercooler. Anyone know?

Scotty did you get that elbow to fit? I can't get mine to fit, the charge pipes are in the way, and makes no room for the filter..

That is the compressor inlet tube. It attaches to the turbo via the 90 degree rubber elbow that should also be included. It has to be angled slightly towards the driver side fender well in order to fit properly.
