    yeah higher boost causes all sorts of drama's. i blew out 2 EGR valve gaskets from under the block off plate that i made.

    I got the clamps out of my electronic boost controller kit. Try express fittings, they're like 50 metres away from ARE

    Yeah they turn out some awesome gear, very pricey though.

    I've been getting a bit nostalgic lately, and was looking over some old pics of the car before I took her off the road.

    I thought I'd post a couple (incase people hadnt seen what she looked like).

    HAHA thanks Geoff! I think YOU need the sunscreen more though!

    So I got excited tonight and went out into the cold to work on her... and *drumroll please* the intercooler pipes are DONE! I took some detail shots of the whole system so you can see how I routed the pipes if anyone wants to do something similar...

    Next step is to get them welded up so I can mount it all properly with the couplers and clamps... cant wait!

    I managed to pick up another aluminium bend thismorning from ARE at brendale. Nice guys and some really good products. Tad on the expensive side, but isnt everything in this game?

    I'll post up pics of the pipe work finished once I get home...

    dude, piping looks great! i was really curios how you were gonna get around that bit without any severe bends, but thats come up really well.
    id never noticed how long the cold pipe would be though, thats quite a length, but unavoidable since the throttle body is all the way up the back.
    how does the hot pipe look?
    from the pix it looks like it just does a U around to the tarrrbroo?

    PM me for all your car audio and other miscellaneous installation needs.

    Thanks guys! It took many man-hours of cutting/test fitting/re-jigging/wasted pipe to fab this...

    The hot pipe comes straight off the turbo, does a 90deg bend and runs along the back of the radiator then does a 180deg bend to the intercooler.

    Here's some previous pics...
