Got the cooler in.. wrapped some heat wrap on the lines just to provide a little abrasion resistance.





And the intercoolers are back in.



And thus begin the most trying part of this install. The intercooler piping.






















Everything fits like a puzzle... we marked the pipes to know how far they needed to go into the couplers to get the full width of the clamp.



These snorkels have to be cut to accomodate the intercooler couplers.



MOAR PIPING!











You need a lot of different extensions and tools to reach everything..







This is the biggest issue right here. These pipes look similar, but they arent. They were packaged together with no marking that they were different. It took us 2 days before we finally figured out they were different...
Either one will fit on the passenger side in either orientation, but the right one in the right orientation is needed on the drivers side....
There are enough other variables in the fit here that if you don't know how its supposed to go, you might kill your partner in anger.
You can see from the scratches how many times they were put in and out.









This is how much clearandce there is between the AC line, Manifold/Heatshield, and wastegate actuator.



So much left to do....



Need to relocate the horn to make room for the intercoolers... I just bent up the OEM bracket and moved it to the top.







Another end of day shot....



Routing the PS lines...



Routed the starter cable...





TWO horns relocated. Why do we have two? BOV's installed!







Final piping!







After all the moving around of the intercooler piping, we were worried they might not be clean...
So what do you do? Hook your shop vac up to the filter inlet.
This has the added benefit that the turbos spool a little and you get to geek out listening to them.
