Bought this kit from nice fellow i've been chatting with on ebay for a while. No the turbo is not clocked, but I think its a nice routing for the piping!

Anyone else here purchased this kit? I bought a monster intercooler for up front, hope to have it all mounted this coming weekend.

Anyone running one of these?

Heres my cooler

Sean, what is the wall thickness of the pipe and what is the pipe made from?

You think your IC is big.. Mine is an Evo 8... motherfawker is a monster.

i wouldnt buy that kit. chances are that it wont be a perfect fit with your intercooler and youll have to buy extra parts to make it work anway.

just buy a bunch of mandrel bends and make your own piping. it will look better in the end.

Is sold quite a few of these, if it doesnt fit, its getting shipped back to him.

Sean what is the measurements on your IC?

I agree with lagos though sean.. you should've went to burnsstainless and paid through the nose for some bends.. honestly the best way to go.

Hey Sean, i've spoken to this guy a few times as well for info on my friends cs st185. He's a really nice,honest guy. He makes these himself. has he shown you pics of the pipe routing?

Because i think you will need your battery relocated and a straight intake iirc. i like the way the cold pipe is routed. its as far away from the heat as possible.

Anyway, good luck with the install and be sure to get some pics up! :)

calm down. its good quality stainless steel, it dont come cheap. you also get price break from them if you are ordering a bunch of bends.

if you can get aluminum for less, do that then. just make sure its not that really thin gauge crap that bends when you put a coupler on it. back when i bought my piping aluminum cost more then stainless so i didnt go with that.

Core is around 25x12x4, with end tanks, its about 31 inches wide :D

This guy has sold A LOT of these kits to a bunch of very happy alltrac owners! I should have my piping on Monday. I have all of my transitions, T Bolt clamps, ATS throttle body inlet, new SSQV flange, etc ready to go! I cant wait, I've been polishing this intercooler for weeks :)

Its about time!
I've been reading that FMIC note at the bottom of your sig for way too long :)

Which T-Bolt Clamps did you end up usin?

Sean
08-19-2006, 07:22 AM
Just some stainless T bolts I picked up online... Should be better then your typical worm drive clamps...

Yeah man, between the new suspension setup, the boost controller, and the front mount, things have been fantastic for celi lately! Pictures to come soon...

Big brake kit is probably 3 months out, and I will continue to work on my spare 3s to get it ready :)
