Yeah... Trying to fit the oilcooler next to it. I am just test fitting it on now, drive it for it while and see if it interferes with anything. Hopes it dosen't.

Anyone see any problem with the placement?

Shino: Pipes was made and bent at a local exhaust shop. Where they provided silicone couplers, and all its required to get it done.

Al: Yeah, getto mechanics dose alot of work on the street. With the very limited garage space.

Nice! I am from H.K. too but in U.S. now. Yeah, I went back a couple of years ago and I was in the monkowk (spelling?) district. These shop owners were working on their customers cars a NSX and a Skyline on in the street. They were crawling under the dash with the door wideopened blocking the sidewalk where tons of people were walking. But thats how it is there most people don't have garages cause its so crowded.

Your car looks great, I am glad its not stickered up like most cars over there.

My local exhaust shop had never done intercooler piping before. The results are not pretty (no mandrel bends, no aluminum welding), but just $60 cash and a way better set-up than the CF that was my Saab IC kit. I'll pretty it up at some point but I was anxious to get that damn Starion IC that had been sitting in my closet for a year finally installed. The guy did a top notch job on the intercooler brackets though. It looks fantastic from the front.

Calsonic, an Japanese Automotive OEM parts manufacturer. I think its Intercooler came off an HIACE Diesel Turbo Van.
