Default pic request, begi s-series ic piping

I'm having trouble visualizing how on earth these pipes work. I only have the pipes and no begi intercooler (don't ask, not my decision), so I know there will be some cutting, but I'm trying to figure out how begi wants the turbo clocked for this crackpipe kit. I'm close to just making my own piping and saving myself the headache of dealing with this stuff.

But... if someone has pics of their begi-s intercooler piping, I'd be overjoyed to see them. Also this is a ssm kit so tubular bottom mount mani makes the routing just a little different.

I've already pulled my AC, power steering, and cruise control in frustration, I hope I don't live to regret not having ac.

I dont have pics.

Its not hard to install intercooler pipping. I did mine in 2 hours with misc pipes, couplers, clamps, and a saw. You have the pieces, just think of it as a puzzle and start trying different pipes in different places, angles, etc.

Guess I'll just take this approach then, I just thought that begi's intercooler piping would have bolted up somewhat rather than hitting everything.

The BEGI-S intercooler piping is the same as the regular intercooler piping, just smaller. So, other than the Intercooler, there is nothing that uses nuts and bolts. Here are some general photos from the regular piping. And I am assuming that you have the cast iron manifold.

Compressor Outlet and IC Inlet

If you need more photos, shoot me an e-mail. I have tons.
