Default Redid my coldside

As I was looking at my intercooler piping shortly after I picked up the Miata from the shippers, I noticed the coldside hangs lower than I realized. I also wanted the BOV closer to the TB and to move the IAT out of the engine bay so it would stop getting heatsoaked. Mission accomplished! Also, I sacked up and drilled the coupler for the WI nozzle, turned out nicely I think.

Not anymore.

For reference, not that you can tell in the pics, but the first pic with the piping out of the car, the piping is resting on the ground and leaning against the bumper. In the after pic, I had to hang the coupler inside the bumper mouth because it was too short to reach the bumper!

why don't you weld some of those pieces so you don't have to use so many couplers?
