Default Stripes Intercooler Kit Picture request

Hi All,

I know about stripes website www.mx5projects.com, but I was wondering does anyone of have a picture showing the pipe that goes down to the intercooler from the turbo side. And by picture I mean DIRECTLY over the engine bay, so you can see the ground type picture. I previously purchased a jmb kit and it was basically on that side that I couldn't get it to fit. I just want to make sure that stripes kit will fit. I know from looking at it, stripes makes a MUCH better product.

Thanks

If you need more pics, let me know. I can take some more when we install Mach929's clutch next weekend.

Also, Mach929 was still wearing his joker make-up when he helped me install my transmission the day after halloween.:gay:

Yes, his kit sucks, I tried several ways to get the kit to fit, Starion, and wasn't able too. On top of that, the welding really is poor as well as the paint that is on the pipes. BUT, the saving grace is that you will not find a kit that is cheaper, but it REALLY shows. Maybe a long time ago they were better quality. But not now.

it's not even the kit, it's the service. For years he was the only option so he never gave a ****, didn't reply to emails, took months to ship, where else were you going to go?

**** him.
