Pictures of the crimped IC pipe

Well here are some the pictures of that jacked up IC tube




Couple people including myself have thought about cutting into that support in the first picture and seeing if will allow for more room, but kinda looks like the battery is in the way of cutting back to far.

Thanks Matt......
If you look at the second pic you can see that Ford tried to keep the tube as close to the intercooler and radiators as possible......I wonder how much room there is in between the tube and the grill......the pinch starts as soon as it comes off the intercooler........

Then there is the problem of the battery in the way, meaning you can notch the core support but the battery is in the way.......so what if we went under the 3 lines under the tube and came back up to the engine?

HMmm if your refering to the three lines in the first picture the problem with that is your gonna start to be running into hood problems with closing it, and wonder how much more air it will take that move that distance.

It can't be that much more, you might have a little more turbo lag, but once the boost is up, its up........so the question now is, how do we get around the battery??? If you move it to the bed you can open up a whole bunch of room for not only the tubes, but the intake as well maybe???

move batteries to the flat bed, and move one turbo to the old battery box, and move the other turbo to the other battery tray and fab up som crazy piping, cut out the grills and suck in straight air

or get an air induction hood and get an air filter up in there, kinda like a cowl hood for the late 80s mustangs.

Now that would be wicked.....instead of using the smaller and bigger turbos, just put two big azz same sized turbos there ........but seriously, I really wonder if that is going to be the trick with the I/C tube, to move the battery to the bed.....if so I just got myself a nice weekend project
