Help. Top Mount turbo and pipping
currently making pipping for the new setup since the t25 blew. I need some help with how the lower IC pipping should be setup. Here are some pics, i think they are 1 to many bends but you tell me. Also they will be welded, the silicon is just there for reference. If you have pics post them up i need ideas!! TY

Wrap the piping around the radiator. All the cool kids are doing it.

oh i forgot to mention the radiator is going in the trunk

yes sir raise that intercooler(looks small) up and than run the piping right through that whole next to the radiator. you might have to do some cutting but that metal doesnt do anything structurally.

wow thats not very good ic piping routing, its tooo tooo close to the downpipe and to me it would seem that it would really heat up your ic piping kinda redundant to me, considering the piping is going to heat up and not really do its job

you could clock the turbo more to keep the piping away from the downpipe

^ thats a good idea if you arent going to run the radiator up front, then clock the turbo as far forward as you can to the front to get it away fgrom the downpipe this is definitly going to help

I ran mine sort of like that (under the radiator support) And my hot side pipes are held up by a bungie cord hahaha

That is a lot of bends and couplers. Gio94sr20ve has a topmount setup, he only has two couplers on the hotside iirc. One of the turbo then on the intercooler iirc. Very straightforward and clears ac.
