if you can bend and weld, simply copy his design.

If you're asking that question, it suggests that you don't have access to a mandrel bender. I'd advise that you just give Stripes money. http://www.mx5projects.com/

If you do not have a mandrel bender, you're better off buying pre-bent tubing. If you have a welder and know how to use it, go for it. Putting together IC piping is not rocket science. This type of job is trial and error until all of your pipes fit. My kit is geared towards the DIY type who want to build their own turbo system, but don't want to deal with the hassle of mocking up intercooler piping.
